Suite III: Endings


frail fingers wrapped thinly
cover brittle bones
without touch or comfort
shy away, self-medicate
reach toward emptiness.
if no one listened
or cared for his well-being
would he decay
into nothing?
ashes to ashes.


kick aside the bodies
back to your business
and your lot in life
time to catch up
we can't afford a minute's rest
or a little breather
cancel your free time
and work until
death creates convenience.
