I Have This Fantasy by Jay Passer

of dying in a dark movie theater
during a 6 dollar and change


it’s not very creative I admit
compared to say, how Mayakovsky died

or Lorca
or Crane-

but this way I can perish
within my element;

a fictitious universe
magnified by lonesome inevitability.

what I like best is how they find me
slumped in the sudden floodlights.
