paranoia fail

"When was the last time you stopped
to pick up a hitchhiker?" she asked
"I never have done did that shit," I replied. "You know why?
Because there is a subculture of people,
who wait by the roadside
to murder me. Specifically,

"why'd you stop this time?"
she asked,

with a suspicious rise
in her eyebrows
in her voice
in her pulse
in her smile
in her eyes

and I had no choice but to realize


she was one of them!
