from a pill to a pound
is a fragile story
the end of which
is coming for a call
when we least or most

there's no cure
for this tax
paid once
always collected
sometimes cool
rarely calm

"i" was 
a comfortable faction
in this war for permanent self
this atheist is trying
to feel agnostic in his foxhole
and write his way divine

an arc from history
to modernity
makes progress eat the crows
and neither hollow bones
nor shallow graves
will help the fraud be free

there's truth in honor
dignity in lies
faith in denial and phobia
to die is a verb
and to live is a guarantee
that sharing is an option
from now til the end of life
