DYING A LITTLE
(3/13/17)

another
day

another
day considering
our mortal
fates

our ends
are known
certainties

our paths
arriving there
varying
by degrees

the attitudes
along these journeys
diverging
even more
obliquely

two people
walking
side by side

one
in fear

one
in joy

traveling
to the same
destination

bumping
shoulders

saying
similar words
to each
other

but intending
different
meanings

together

yet each
ever
alone
