For you, a thousand times over.


give this old man a childhood

we say there is no beauty in deteriorating flesh
no character in scars
nothing fascinating about ghostly eyes
that watched everything dissipate
he does not want to die
say it now, say it does not end
break what is left of his failing body
when you lie like you have a choice and say

not tonight, there is no time
