Poem of the Week

The order of a good death

This morning
the sun was shining
and the radio played
‘Dancing Queen’
on my way to the gas station
and life went on

for most of us

and I thought to myself
how lucky I would be
to go out the way I came in

diapered in a darkened room
surrounded by family
a bit confused
a bit angry
known to be a blessing
so very
very
loved
