Passing

By , Los Lunas, NM
What happens when someone dies?

Do they fly up


like an angel in the sky?
Or sink like a submarine-
and then burn?


Does it darken like the night?




Or thirst and hunger-

like the vampire fright?



Maybe it just freezes

like a stone statue.


Or does it haunt you?

Emulated from Harlem by Langston Hughes.
