daguerreotype

tête-à-tête with Death

Myself

you live in me
as numerous
daguerreotypes
host of beloved
faces you snatched
untimely, now
you’ve the gall
to assert you’re
kinder than life
~
Death

It is I
the vilified
standing before you
stymied, stupefied
redo your math on life
a loomed litany of small big
joys, cart load of grief
I
on other hand
only bring
infinite
everlasting
peace
~
