The one we killed


Mira Minkova

I have enough money to buy a ticket for somewhere away from here.
What might be the cost for the ticket to take me somewhere away from myself?
I saw a young man buying at the station. He said
He said hero, and I figured out what he was talking about. I heard
that they have found him lying as a dog in the park.
I heart that - but I felt they have found him lying as an angel!
And somebody mentioned there were fifty more of these, just like him! in the morgue.
And somebody mentioned they did not know his name. I know it! I
know it... and I know even more Christs.
