The Report of My Death

A Literenga by Jeffrey L. Salter and Carlos Colon
9 February - 11 March 1998

 

Nose tickles      but can't sneeze

Kleenex       at the end of it        a tiny

I'd keep Shania Twain        and trade Mark

 

Riffling cards      the riverbank gambler walks the plank

Fisn net snags pearl handle       loaded derringer

Declaring her innocence       a broad with blood on her hands

Judge interrupted     can't complete sentence

 

30 seconds left a 'Hail Mary' from the head coach

Traveler        galloping ghost

Dog tags buried        with the wrong corpse
