HERE ONE MINUTE
(11/8/18)


life

death

when we're
gone
the world
goes on
fairly much
the same

people
going
to work

taking
vacations

getting
drunk

getting
laid

our passing
is hardly
a hiccup
in their lives

perhaps
a pause
for reflection

then
forgotten

they get
hungry
again

preoccupied
with their own
mortality

as we are
with ours
while contemplating
our demise
