Cops

When I see cops

I think of sharks

Predatory beasts

Indiscriminately

Looking for a meal

It’s a matter of fact

They are going

To get someone

They are looking for someone

They are hungry

Wanting

Needing

To do their

Jobs

There is no telling

If it’s going to be

Me or not

I could have done

Any number of things

Wrong

Maybe my eyes strayed

To the radio

Maybe I swerved

Across the white line

Maybe I was going

Too close

To the speed limit

And it made

Me look suspicious.

So I Decide

The best thing

To do

Is just

Put my eyes

On the road

Pretend

I was doing

Everything

Right

And

Hope

He gets someone else

I call NYC home and wish the subway went everywhere and Times Square didn't suck. I saw John Turturro once. Maybe it was him. He was wearing a yellow shirt and smiled at me like he knew I knew. I am an Army vet who writes. I like characters who want more then they deserve. I like genre fiction. I love space. I love paladins. One day I might write a paladin in space story. Just you wait. The university of South Florida spit me out with a degree in creative writing and I find myself questioning the sanity of going to a school that advertises a fake beach on its brochure ever since. I intuit grammar. I Got married in 2012 We had twins in 2015. I do a lot of cooking and dog walking and ranting about the unfairness of sentience.
