DEATH BE NOT LOUD
(1/10/18)

past
a certain age
dying
with a whimper
has an appeal

we just
don't want
to be bothered
with death

life
has worn
the excitement
from the finish

let
the end come
easily

quietly

like
turning off
a light

leaving us
alone
in the dark

walking
a room
we have always
known
