Suicidal Waves
Christina Marie Drake

One pull of the trigger could end your life.
Quick and painless.
Over in less than 3 seconds.
Or you could just go to sleep.
Pop a couple more aspirins than needed.
Or you could go the painful way.
Slits in the wrists.

Across the street or down the road,
watching the dark red ooze
bubble up on your fair skin.
Beauteous death.
Could never come quick enough.
