Slapped Poet with A Dark I" (new poem)

"Slapped Poet with A Dark I"
by Tim Kavi

I once saw a semi naked man
sitting on the street

My mistake was in thinking
I was somehow better than him

I saw the vastness of the Universe
on one sleepy night

It did not stop me from snoring

I once received an important letter

It promised an exotic vacation

I parked my car carefully on a quiet street

On a backstretch Interstate 270 a sniper
watched traffic through his sights

I saw a pretty flower emerge in the dirt

A few days later, it was not there.
