Metaphysics for Beginners: Poetry by Peycho Kanev


There is a Hell,
said to me a shadowy figure on the street
at dusk
during my evening stroll
And what about Heaven then
There’s got to be one
if Hell exists,
I asked
Nobody answered
He was gone
The sky darkened and the stars seeded the sky
I wanted to find him and ask him something else
but my owner tugged gently at the leash and we went
in another direction.
