One day until betrayal

by Željka Horvat Čeč

One day until betrayal

One day I'll rob a bank and help the poor. And myself. And family.

If I'm not caught.

One day I'll walk in the woods and sing like a dying bird

until I'm left without feathers.

One day I'll find a wounded animal and help it. I won't kill it, it'll be my family,

and you don't kill family.


Except in betrayal.
