In Memoriam

Why does transience brew
such dread?

It’s not difficult to grasp that gentle dispatch,
not longevity, is the kinder portion.

He ate a full breakfast each morning
when he could still chew.

A cup of hemlock, sooner or later, is soothing.
It doesn’t taste so strange after a few sips.

The dead are not so sad to die
as we are for them to depart.

Poor us.
