Ordinary

Eyes + Words

Written by Jacob Ibrag

When I opened the bathroom door, a man

with a gray mustache greeted me and said I should,

‘enjoy your last day.’ Not knowing what to make of his words,

I asked him what he meant. Taking off his worn out cowboy hat, he

handed it over to me. He told me that I’d need it more than any amount

of oxygen I’ve ever borrowed, that ‘when you go, you should go out in style.’

And as I stare at the fate filled arrow pointed towards my skull, I realize

that the story of how I got here is irrelevant. I’m about to go out

as a dead pretend cowboy and I guess that’s better

than leaving as an ordinary human.
