Serial Killer VII

I just realized that I haven’t posted one of my old serial killer shorts in a long time! I apologize for being so remiss. Here’s Serial Killer VII: Solitary (I apologize for the formatting)

Serial Killer VII: Solitary


They put me in a cell by myself today

Apparently they frown

On killing cellmates

There is no window

Only a small slot

Through which they place meals

And “fan mail”

These “fans” make me sick

Talking about things like

“I wish I had the guts

To do what you had done

To my cheating boyfriend”

When I write back with

“You have the guts, meatling,

You merely have to slice yourself open

To see them”

They stop writing back

I know my mail is being read

Checked to see

If I am plotting something

But there is nothing to plot

In this six-by-eight cell

I am now taken to court

In both arm and leg shackles

With four armed guards

Taking me back and forth

My lawyer is nervous

I can tell

He leans away from me

He turns white

As each photo is shown

I reluctantly agreed

To an insanity defense

Though I clearly am not insane

My thoughts, my actions

Written in this journal

Should alone prove my sanity

I smile

As I pat the spiral notebook before me

Once this is read

They will see the true me

Once this is read

I will surely be a free woman
