Malcolm, Martin, and John

Anyone notice my likeness in bright lights?
If so, turn the lights off.
They were left on in error.

Anyone notice my name written on a whiteboard?
If so, just erase it. My background is black.
That whiteboard has me held hostage.

Anyone notice my last name hyphenated?
If so, disregard such profanity.
My wife isn't fully committed to our marriage.

Anyone notice my name as a book's author?
If so, buy the book. For certain, I wrote it.
Know this, "I need the money."

Anyone seen Malcolm, Martin, and John?
If so, tell them I'll be seeing them soon.
All men die once, then judgment.

~ Malcolm, Martin, and John

I cannot speak for my poetry, it must speak for itself.
