Bored

I got so bored today
– So fucking bored –
That,
On my way home from work,
I thought about swerving across the median of this two-way highway,
Into oncoming traffic,
And driving head-first into a sixteen-wheeler.

I thought about my head splitting into a hundred little fragments of bone against the windshield;

Bone and
Blood and
Teeth and
Flesh.

I thought about my ribcage collapsing on my heart
And stabbing into the muscle,
While the damn thing is still going
Buh-dump,
Buh-dump,
Buh-dump.

And I bet my brain would splatter into a
Pink,
Slimy,
Mush
, I thought,
Still driving home.

But then I smoked a joint,
And I wasn’t so bored anymore.
