YESTERDAY, WE RAN
(10/16/16)

we wonder
if our
lifetime efforts
will be enough

if they
will sustain us
during our
dwindling days

when we
are immobile

when we
are dying

if any
of our past actions
will detract
from our
overwhelming
infinite view
of oblivion

maybe
they shouldn't

perhaps

when the time
comes

we should
be bereft
our worldly
clothing

naked

new

now

for the awaiting
chasm
of preterconsciousness

all mortal
luggage
left behind

we wonder

we really
do

because
today

our bodies
ache
