Police tape lines the yard
I walk past
Baby blue house in cookie-cutter neighborhood
I look down and it says welcome
I quickly step in and close the door
so the camera flashes don’t glimpse inside
A table set for seven with pink orchids in the middle
In my final momentsBy Sankara “Le prince heritier” Olama-Yai
I hear the gunshot, I do not see
The bullet but I know it’s coming
Aimed to perforate my skull
They say your life flashes, once death’s
Shadow is on your tail and grips you in
Your terror’s wake. I have 0.05 seconds
