Robert Beveridge



if you haven’t siphoned enough

money into your real estate

ventures, if you haven’t lured

enough unsuspecting travelers

to the motor lodge, if you haven’t

done enough club drugs

in Miami, if you haven’t rigged

enough polls, if you haven’t

been able to bang your wife

a while ’cause your dick’s too big,

if you haven’t splattered enough

blood on the shopping center pavement,


don’t worry, there’s always

tomorrow. they haven’t

caught you. yet.

Robert Beveridge (he/him) makes noise (xterminal.bandcamp.com) and writes poetry in Akron, OH. Recent/upcoming appearances in Throats to the Sky, FEED, and Sublunary Review, among others.
