A woman lies alone.
Her room breathes to the rythm
of machines pushing
air into her lungs.

Under the hum of Fluorescents
they com.
Both young and old--
eight to eighty--
they gather round her.

In a circle they hold hands
and say goodby and pray to god
and for a moment they are

one with eachother,
one with god,
one with her,

and though she dies
they remain
their bond forever loyal,
forever strong.
