Social norms

as he reaches into the fridge
for a snack,
he chooses, ritualistic sacrifice,
a tasty snack, pleasurable even.
then he proceeds to
continue the conversation
social norms.


life is so obviously cheap. i should probably hang myself from the sycamore tree at the park. first i must pay a penance and avoid the slaughter for 20 or 30 years.

here’s another one titled “the smell”

if the lord asks me for a burnt offering
maybe he would enjoy
the smell
of his bibles burning.

@Lifer please don’t harm yourself! Keep writing poems! I like your poems!


Ok is ritualistic sacrifice a euphemism @Lifer ? That went over my head. lol
