"Prophet of the Punch Bowl" by Jay Passer


I did 50 jumping jacks

ate a bowl of mint chip ice cream 

read the bad news online

hit my head hard on the shower fixture

 

and died.

 

I texted my mom

up in heaven,

asked her to reserve me 

a window seat.

 

when I arrived

she said

Son, you look 

terrible.

it felt good at first

then what happened was the rest of my life
