What’s It Like To Be Dead? (Written December 21)

What’s It Like To Be Dead?


Well there is one way to find out.

The problem is you won’t be able

To tell anyone. So what good


Will it do? Something

Closer to home would

Be helpful. For instance,


Look at the way the snow falls,

Softly, in a sort of dance,

Intricately choreographed,


Yet subject to sudden shifts

In the wind, or strong drafts

That blow in on a whim.


Or look at the dove, nearly invisible,

Curled up on the limb

Of the tree, round as a ball,


Waiting out the storm, while

Her mate, below, calls

To her, beckoning.
