That Severing Snip

There is evil in this world, for sure

there are people lurking in disguises

peeling off their patchwork skin masks

to reveal faces even more horrifying


but there is also buffalo chicken

and you and I, in my bed

with our dog in it

watching all our favorite

horror movies

and there’s that bone

he’s gently chewing

as he lays in my lap

and gazes up at me


then, there is that blood

curdling scream, the severing

snip, the guillotine falling down,

the beheading-which serves to remind me

of how safe i really am, and happy

while I ask for more blue cheese
