What Kills A Man
what kills a man:
by Agunbiade Kehinde
when a man finds desert in his purse
and takes no meal not to mention a dessert,
his sighs become the water he drinks to aid the digestion of a thousand worries that went down his throat.
a man stares at what grinds him into debris,
burns his heart &
slams the empty doors in his head
and doctors warn him to be wary of his pulse.
what else kills a man if not the emptiness that breathes in his dead pocket?
