"For some reason, nobody seems to be talking about who we’re up against"
-Frank Miller

Running in chaos and ruins,
The rings of smoke emanate from my cigarette.

The sky, both gray
and discomforting-
Nourishes me.

What comes after this life:
Might be oblivion.

Wolverine:
My tattoo speaks in Hebrew.

But death,
It calls to me in all languages-

The language spoken through wails , accidents, suicides- and

Murder.

It makes life on the other side exciting.

Embracing death is freedom.

To be with Death-
Shall set me free.

I light and sip the smoke of another Marlboro Red -

A slow undefined suicide

Which pleases me.

Kent Queipo rewritten without consent by John Robert L. Luna

Ewan ko ba kung bakit si Frank Miller ang ginamit ko sa isang tula na may Marvel allusions.
