Death Be Nimble

 

Ryan K. Sauers

 

death

is solace

an end to a mean

 

a vacuum

linear

cyclical

 

death is sorrow

death is foot to ass

death is final

 

no loose talk

sinking of ships

trading of secrets

looks over shoulders

among the dead

 

Abrahamic

Dharmic

Nihilistic

 

the results

are the same

eternal internment

senescence

 

peace

a breeze that fans

throbs the temple

 

death be nimble

death be quick

death be the candle wick
