Mine Field

Saw a story
about a live bomb
undetonated
in the ground

Waiting
for some
unsuspecting
someone
to come around.

I tend
to divide
my life
into Pre
and Post.

But what if
I was always
tending
the mine field?
Always
the predestined
ghost?

And it wasn't so much
a question -
of if
but, rather, when?

Perhaps the bomb
was always there
and
given endless chances
I'd hit it again
and again.
