Desk Rabbit

Let’s shake on it

so we can muster the courage

to walk onstage, face the crowd

take a dive

and plunge into

darkness

Let’s pinky promise

to keep in touch,

be the next of kin

donate blood if we must

meet our significant others

Let’s not fake it, boy

it benefits no one

(not at this stage anyway)

to “care” without really investing

ourselves.

A poem by Duffboy
