The End
by Thom Young

the end
on a Tuesday night
there were three of them
the devil, Jesus, and Larry
their car was last seen
parked in front of the 7-11
over on Western and Vine
the engine still on
the tape deck played Ol' Blue Eyes
there was a woman in the trunk
with her mouth taped shut
she said her name was Linda
there was no description
of the devil or Jesus
but Larry had on a ball cap
and walked with a limp
Linda said.
