When Mr. Bones Corners Richard Cory
He Wishes He Hadn’t

When Mr. Bones
catches up
with Richard Cory

he empties
his handgun
into him,

but it
has no effect
on him at all.

Richard keeps
straight at Mr. Bones

like the dead
in Night Of The
Living Dead Republicans

Their putrid
unfeeling flesh
falls off of them,

their rotten hearts
pound drums of hate
in their chests,

and the maggots
that live in their brains
have to do the thinking for them.
