This is how we die

Late night notes made over coffee,
abandoned in public places
music relegated to the hollow imagination
truths about the self buried in work.

This is how we die.

Not the passing on of the body to become the world
but the systematic neglect of the
nobilities in the self yearning for light.

This is how we die…
by pieces.
