“First Thing”

first things first, i

glance out the kitchen

window, wondering if

the snipers will take

me out today, the

thought flitting through

my mind as naturally

as breathing, a way

of life for me,

expecting the unexpected,

hoping for the best

but planning for the

worst, a wearisome

way to live, yet i

get by somehow

and they still haven’t

gotten me yet
