The Presence of Death [March 25th | 79/365]

the cable news blares
while the middle aged
men gossip passionately about
distant family and friends

the schnauzer barks incessantly
until he is leashed
which is when he
starts gnawing on furniture

the not so old
woman in the wheelchair
behind her there are
flowers in a vase

the pink flower occupies
the center and draws
the eye in like
water up a stem
