55: (W)Hole

Marvin had a gap between his teeth
a mouth full of cavities, empty pockets,
worn out shoes and a congenital heart defect.

Few family, fewer friends,  always searching
for something.

"Life is full of holes" he would say....

They buried him in another mans suit.
With no holes.

Dead Marvin smiled.

Finally at peace.

Whole.

A happy ending to make up for Galen's misguided killing spree. That's the way I like it.
