The Inevitable Embrace

When rabbits howl
And the hero screams.
Your life will soon be over
Or so the singer sings.

When Death comes for you
And you just let her pass.
You’ll soon see your only friend
Is the one swimming in your glass.

When she finally confronts you
And you embrace those ghostly lips
She’ll simply suck your heart dry
Leaving you dead, as your blood she sips.

-28 April 1992/27 August 1995

  1. Our natural tendency is to desperately try to hold onto what we can see, to continually try to keep alive a steadily decaying relationship with life…and, ironically, it eventually slips from our grasp and we lose it anyway.
