“Fiction”

While you watch at home
Your favourite actors killed
Able to see the other movies
Where they have died on-screen

Forgetting these scenes
Are based on a reality
That is happening right in the comfort of your own home town

Where you may brush away hyperbolic situations
As something that only happens “in fiction”
Scrolling down the IMDB page
Of a face that was once pale
Resting on a gurney

Where the actual faces of the morgue
Are never seen, really.

While you watch at home
All these horrific crime cases
Emotionally stirred for a moment,
Than back to browsing online for giggles

Then off to bed,
Since you have an early shift tomorrow
And you lie in bed,
Wondering why you can’t sleep.
