Chicken Express by Thom Young

I blew her brains out
on a Sunday morning
she was reading People magazine
an article on the Bachelor
or maybe it was the Bachelorette?
I don’t remember.
sad gray blood on those plastic
I drove to Chicken Express
and got a four piece combo with okra,
roll, and gravy.
everything was cold
by the time I got home.
