The Grim Reaper Is My Best Friend ……………by Jake St. John

The grim reaper
is my best friend
he walks
with me
everyday

sometimes
down the sidewalk
and into work
sometimes
into the woods
alone
we’ll go

we sit
and talk
philosophy
and books
his favorite
author
is a prick
and mine
is a fraud

I don’t
stop for lunch
but he’ll pause
and eat
a ham sandwich

he is
kind enough
to pour me
a drink
at any time
of day

and
in the morning
we drink
black coffee
together
while laughing
at the news
