We Are Learning From The Mistakes Of Others by J.J. Campbell

crooked pictures
and piles of lies

you straighten
one and the other
reveals another
stunner

it’s the middle
of july and
everyone is
dropping like
flies

some people are
uncomfortable
around death

the rest of us
believe we are
learning from
the mistakes
of others

regardless, i
hope all of us
understand that
we are going to
be nothing but
dust one day

fertilizer for
weeds

a safe home
for worms
and regret
