Fatal Exposure

Standard

ruined early
by William Shakespeare and George Romero
tragedy, comedy, romance
revenge and reanimation
Ophelia afloat
Barbara beside the graves
spoiled children
and dead parents
siblings turned

what chance given then
to find genuine contentment
on the detergent aisle
or on picnics
that ended
with anything less than
terminal betrayal
or utter illumination
