JJ Campbell, Summer 2017

destroy that enemy

look in
the mirror

destroy
that enemy
and you’ll
be amazed
at just how
easy life
can be

i wish
i would
have
learned
that long
before i
got to my
later years

 

 

signs of life

the faint
sounds of
laughter
from down
the hall

it’s rare for
any signs
of life in
this house
anymore

just two
dying souls
seeking a
comfortable
death

one natural

and the other
through the
means that
has got him
this far

soon,
it shall
become
a race

 

brutal hindsight

it’s
been
years
since
i’ve
got
in a
vehicle
and just
turned
on the
radio
and
started
driving

destination
unknown

i
suppose
that’s
what
i get
for
coming
back
home
