Fade Into

Imagined it all
somewhat different.
Rather, bold.
Brightly lighted
mini marquees.
Macabre parades.
Acquiescing smiles.
Limp handshakes
from spineless autocrats.
Divine Prognostications.

in a grizzly manner
meant to look like
a pointless suicide.
It would be raining.
And the cats
would be cranky.
Weather pushing me
