death and I met

Death and I met at the drugstore on the corner I was

going in as he was coming out and blind in his hurry

he almost hit me head on but he missed and so

I nodded hello as was my habit and then he smiled a guilty

smile that I seemed to know and aloud I wondered if maybe

we’d met somewhere before and being a gentleman he slowed down and politely

answered no but I feel so certain that I’ve seen you somewhere I

insisted and he thought maybe we’ve known some of the same

people and that must be it I said then he smiled a funny

smile and said we’ll surely meet again someday so I certainly hoped

we would and then stepped into the door as he

made his way down the crowded sidewalk.
