WE ALL SLEEP ALONE
(10/21/14)


once
we fade from
consciousness
those about us
cease
to matter

no matter
how close
they may
be

death
is the
same

so why
worry
about maintaining
all of these
meaningless
relationships
of family

friends

neighbors

coworkers

acquaintances

establish
a solitary life
today

tomorrow's
demise
will simply
be an extension
of your current
existence

you will be
immortal
in your
isolation

of course

no one
else
will know
