I’ll Go


something will kill me
a falling beam
sudden sink hole
cells gone rogue
swells escaped from melting glaciers
very bad cheese

up ahead
my doom

and that will be all

i’ll leave nothing
but used tissue
and mess to be sponged

just perhaps
i concede
there might be
something more

i’m not canting of rebirth
of dusky tunnels ending in illumination
or welcoming parties of celestials

but of your perfect
dark and turbulent heart
and my eternal entrenchment there
