Shinigami


He sat in front of me,
just simply listening to music,
and bobbing his head.

He didn't noticed when I shadowed him,
out of his car,
being wary of my steps.

Shit, humans don't notice a damn thing,
do they?
The just simply go on,
moving slowly,
carefree.

I wish they could stay like that,
that I wouldn't have to collect their eternal,
debt.

But hey, a job's a job,
and someone's got to do it,
no matter the grief,
no matter the mourn.

There! little girl; don't cry!
