"See in what peace a Christian can die." - Joseph Addison
"How come everyone will come to your funeral, but nobody will come see you when you are living?"


Plucking one of his fingers
I pop it into my mouth
Blueberry pancakes
I savor the taste

He takes a strand of my licorice hair
And slides it into his mouth
Spitting it out,
He scratches at the rancid
Taste on his tongue

Wailing, I fling myself into
The desert sea
And drown myself
In blistering sorrow

Though my eyes are closed
I gaze at the field of sunflowers
Their breathtaking beauty
Stunning me

I touch a petal
And it draws away
From me wilting,
An unseen fire killing it

My mouth stretches back
In a scream
Enveloping me
Overtaken by silence
My candle
Has been snuffed
