Homicide Eyes
Hayden Smith

Oh. Homicide Eyes. You’ve
got Homicide Eyes. Infect, prod
and gouge, they’ll become never
the lesser but more of a lesson
in futility.

Oh. Homicide Eyes. Dear,
Homicide Eyes. You’ve
seen places I have yet
to imagine. You go places
I cannot pronounce.

Oh. Homicide Eyes. Listen,
Homicide Eyes. You’re twice
as deadly as you even recognize.
If confronted by you, I choose
suicide.

Oh. Homicide Eyes. You’ve
got Homicide Eyes. Pick me
up or put me down. Throw a
line or let me drown.

Oh. Homicide Eyes.
It’s the waiting I can’t stand.
