Better Than A Rabbit’s Foot by Rob Plath

the everyday thought
of death

has nothing to
do w/your actually
physical demise

the everyday thought
of death
is a little
sickle you
carry around
on your keychain
along with
a bottle opener

you take it out
when you’re in
a shitty situation

it lets you know
that your current state
of agony
is impermanent

that the sores
eventually turn
to scars at least

& if you’re actually
happy then it highlights
that fact even more

let’s you seize
the relief while
you can

the everyday thought
of death
dangles
as it damn
well should

you should
let it
