The Kind of Silence We Try Not To Think About

The Kind of Silence We Try Not to Think About

Don't buy this after I'm dead --
a corpse can't recite a poem
or cash a royalty check,
but at least has no worries
about paper thin immortality
while going along with god's jokes,
only to realize too late
no one's laughing.
