THE JOURNALIST by Jones LM

We struck up a conversation at the local post office,
looked to be in his seventies
said he retired here from Dallas
said he was a journalist
owned a newspaper back there.

That was two years ago,
yesterday he called 911
told dispatch he had just shot his wife to death
said he’d be dead
before they got there, outside
under the pine tree.

He couldn’t have written a better ending.
