The Specter
Richard Evans

my brother died today
while eating skittles
a convenience-store his last public appearance

I took for granted that he would breath
for at least fifty more years
slowly rhythmically the way he walked
that teenage swag
unbeknownst to him
a specter was lurking fueled by disdain
armed to the teeth
emboldened by a newfound sense of invincibility

under the watchful eye of shadows
he took a stand my brother did
along with his final breath
