Only The Deserving

Written for:  Friday Writings #41

"Create a piece from POV of a television character."

Have to take notice.
Who will avenge
these senseless,
horrific murders
if not me.  My dark
passenger rides
with me, guides me.
Harry's voice is
always in my head,
'Don't kill innocent
people.'  My last kill–
pictures of his victims
taped up facing him–was
a brutal guy whose prey
was children and teenage
girls.  What a rush
I got after the kill.
I work for the Miami
Police Department.  I am
a blood spatter expert.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Kind of chilling.


  2. I don’t know this character, but he sounds as if he loves his work a little too much!

    LOL, he is a very fascinating character. I really enjoyed the first couple of seasons of the original, but like most people wasn’t a fan of the finale. I haven’t watched any of the new version though.


  4. A professional avenger would be a chilling thing to be.

    At first I thought you were writing about Don Johnson (Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice) this Dexter guy’s life sounds gruesome. LOL

    Now that must be Dexter!
    First heard of bloodstain pattern analysis from this show.


  7. Blood spatter expert is not the job I would choose…haven’t watched this show though!

    I’m with Rosemary on this. I don’t know the show and I also didn’t know blood splatter expert was a thing. But that makes sense.
