LOCAL LIT: From ‘Some Tiny Desk Poems’

short works by Bruce Taylor

Bruce Taylor |

AT THE PAIN CLINIC WAITING ROOM
it always seems to take forever.

 

ELEVATOR PITCH
Another floor another story.

 

“IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING”
Look at that!

 

YOU ARE HERE
Look familiar?

TRIGGER WARNING
Shit happens.

 

SPOILER ALERT
Everybody dies at the end.

 

I AM NOT A ROBOT
I am not a robot.

HAPPINESS MAKES YOU SAD
you know it never lasts.

 

IT’S NEVER A BAD IDEA
to always say good-bye.
