2 DOOR COFFIN
(2/24/10)


I stopped
for only
a second
and they buried
me

no air
no light
I sit here compressed
by the unbelievability
of it all

I know
that struggling
serves no purpose
so I try
to center
and to accept
my circumstance

it's
not so bad
I guess

people
suffer worse
every day
every minute
every second
everywhere

my eyes close

life
has been good
and this is
as good
of an end
as I could
expect

I feel
the oxygen
in my lungs
expiring
along with
my consciousness

suddenly
someone honks me
into resurrection
and I look ahead
to see green

I gas
that sucker
to get moving
again

to get
breathing
again

it's good
to be
back

I have
work
to do
