An ode to Death

You’re always an abstract
You affect only others not me
You’re light-years away from me
You don’t bother me

You’re always an afterthought
You highlight life’s brevity
You highlight life’s absurdity
You don’t disorient me

You’re always consistent
You level the inequities
You swat the monstrosities
You don’t disappoint me

You’re always imminent
You’re born when I was born
You’re gone when I am gone
You never forsake me
