ONE DAY TO LIVE
(1/30/14)


I think
that I'll skip
a shower

a shave

brushing
my teeth

at this point
grooming
has no point

I shall dress

not so much
as a programmed
sense of decorum

but rather
to wander about
in anonymity
if there will be
no tomorrow
in which
to roam

not really
that hungry
perhaps
I'll nibble
my flesh
as an appetizer
for this
dwindling life

there is nothing
to preserve
any longer

I walk
with no purpose
other than
to experience
living
until I die

I look
down
to a welcoming
ground
that will never
know
my body

because
in these
final hours

I still
have other
plans
