DAY GO BY

 by Dario Jimenez

Joe did not know
he was going to die that very same Sunday.
In the morning
bought a blue Chevy, sedan.
For lunch
had a double cheese sandwich with beer
as he always did for his birthday
and sat in the porch
to watch the day go by.

  1. A really chilling idea, Dario, and very effective.

  2. The poets voice in this poem is extraordinary. Very minimal. Love what he does with such few words in setting tone in poem. The poem is just tilted a bit sideways with a great second line and no tidy bow summarizing what reader should get out of poem. Very effective narrative. Does everything an excellent poem should do!
