Bet on Losing

By Kovine

The dog won’t shut up 

A grown woman 
Hiding in her room 
While they scream 

It’s funny
Pure comedy
Ha-ha funny 

Booming voices 
Breaking violently 
Be alone

Stay so quiet
You forget you’re alive
And the sound of your own voice 

Won’t stop 
Why’d I stop? 
Animalistic fear

In the eyes 
In the smell
All I know 

Is anger
