A Quiet Place By Eric Allen Yankee

Issue 5

I live in a quiet place
This goddamn evil road
Babbling insane lies
A night’s worth of ice
Followed by total confusion
Rabbit bites its own head off
Gunned down in a blazing crossfire
A huge red shark
Just outside the door
Pools of fresh blood
Put a different interpretation
On the scene
