TERMS OF MORTALITY
(7/10/16)


we are
born
with no guaranty

no warranty

life and death
remain
constant mysteries
for us

yet we
speak of them
as if
we really know
something

as if
we know
what we are
doing

what
will be done

knowledge
all quite beyond
our providence
even though
society
will tell us
otherwise

that fact
of unsubstantiated
facts
should be
our warning

banner ads

billboards

commercials

our caution
signs
