Today
an old woman
leaped and bounded
across a field
of blooming thistles
to cut my throat
for picking wildflowers
on a rainy day
down a gravel road
leading from
an ancient graveyard--
and THEN
she fell in a ditch.

Sometimes life really sucks.

I've had days like that
It's a bugger happening
but a hoot explaining

Well, I'm glad she fell in the ditch and didn't cut your throat!
