when i finally found it
i didn’t show you.
i didn’t show you because it felt
like a reminder that in the end, life comes for us all.
it’s not a chomp in the dark, more like a yum.
death savors us slowly
consuming us bottoms up until
there is nothing left
but the tiniest toenails left on the floor.
how quickly i allow one thought to derail it all
you make me question all that i know
yet you mean almost nothing to me
who gave you this power?
in a dream i wrote
it told the story of life
not in as many words
but quickly and easily
but i don’t remember it anymore.
