Her Pockets

By tori

When she died, they took her things:

necklace, watch & silver rings.

They slid them off with expertise,

then took her wallet, phone & keys.


They put them in a plastic tray,

with her book & body spray,

a pen, a comb, her fake ID,

a pin badge labelled "shop trainee".


They wiped down all the bloody splatters,

then folded up her shattered glasses.

They tucked them in a scrumpled note,

complete with David Bowie quote.


They found a lighter in her jeans,

lipstick, pot and jelly beans.

Last they found the dog-eared letter,

"My death will make your lives much better."
