Death and I Walk Into A Bar

by nyssa96

Today, a somber Friday

the streets flooded with rain and dirty drainage water

This town

has seen too many deaths--

men shot in the head

the hopes and dreams of little girls

concluded far too soon

and the constant buzz in my head

that whispers sad songs on loop.

I have tried ignoring it

just like how some women ignore catcalling

but it wouldn't stop

so I taught myself how to laugh and dance to the cheerless melodies

while grabbing Death's clammy hands

kissing him on the lips

and whispering back, not today

not today.
