Every dream yearning for horizons prettier
Every wish offered to showers of meteors
Every secret spilling betwixt bed sheets
Every laugh echoed down side streets
Every sotto voce curse so expressed
Every vow of love you confessed
Every mother’s gentlest caress
Every memory yet to forget
Every hair on your head
Every tear ever shed
Every breath
in time
that never is
& never will be
our backdrop to infinity
life subsumed by singularity
non-existence melded into essence
laid to rest the hero, lover, & wanderer
borne away on indefatigable streams eternally
ego’s clever dance hamstrung at the nub of rebirth
self, dissolved into stardust forever among the cosmos
reverence be damned; send my soul home, i've reservations
