dead man


life is massive
and fantastic

then those
walls close in

when squeezed
from four corners-
body frame loses wind

down the escalator-
brain starts to descend

although pressure
makes diamonds-
it don’t spell a happy end

your diamond may be exposed
in your next life-friend

between now and then-
cold and dark is your kin

soul chasing soul-for many millennia

bond beyond blood-
the kinship’s always been

stardust-born gold
rust-when human

born to live-
and then die-once again

the only real sin?
we don’t learn no lessons

only true friend?
your reflection

and if you hate what you see ?

dead man
