More Than He Deserved

i caught him
breaking in
through the
basement window

no embarrassment
no apology

instead anger

the motherfucker
needed to be dead
more than he
deserved to be alive

he belittled my faith
disrespected my culture
violated my security
threatened my family
threatened my life

so i looked him in the eyes
put my hands around his throat
and squeezed
barely aware of his struggle

when it was over
i was disgusted
by the stench
of his shit and piss

as nasty in death as he was in life

needed to be dead
more than he deserved

i slit his throat
like a slaughtered pig

the abstract ness
of blood saturated sand

as i
cut the body
into parcels

because it would set back
the days work
by an hour or two
what a waste

needed to be dead
more than he deserved

hauled the mess
 to the desert
dug a hole threw him in
piece by bloody piece

the coyotes
and ravens will feast

what’s left
will rot into compost
nourish the plants

more productive
in death

the motherfucker
needed to be dead
more than he
deserved to be alive
