The Last

June 6, 2008
By Jason Cooper, New City, NY

This is it
It’s over
It’s finished for good
The last poem
The final letters
Put on paper
Like the closing lines
In a prolonged verse

These words
Must be chosen carefully
With much decision and thought
They must cap off the year
And all that has been taught

These phrases
Must come
Straight from the heart
Circulating through the body
Only to restart

Afresh, anew, again
Next year

Because these are the last letters
The last words
The last phrases
Of the last poem
Of the last piece held dear
