Poem: An Early Arrival – Spoken Word and Text – 11/08/20

Death says, “You’re early!” as I walk onto the stage. My guillotine sharpened and ready, media smiling whilst clasping notepads, pressed pens upon page. I was not expected for years, this is what Death’s exclamation explains to me, but I am a spectacle, I am here for the hungry crowd, they wish to view the macabre, this audience is here and ready to see.
