Ben Quint // COUNTDOWN

Just the other day I was walking down 10th street

It was 9 o’clock and it was getting dark

A shadow passed about 8 feet away

The man must have been 7 feet tall

He was a good 6 inches taller than the man cowering before him

The smaller man was crying like a 5 year old

There was bang as he was shoved into 4 trash cans

The barks of 3 dogs rang through the night

This followed by 2 gun shots

And 1 corpse

Then he turned to me and I knew there would be 0 witnesses.
