the angel of small death,
floats with wings of cold,
above bubbles and icebergs,
and floats. a face
painted with the grim mask of depression, a face full of resentment as death is given
to small things,
small things like envy and foolish love,
discretion and emotion,
killed before it killed men.
before it killed clumsy men guarded by their guardian angel,
their small angel of small death,
and hangovers .
