Bob The Belly

Lately, I’ve begun to call my belly Bob.
Wherever I go, along hallways, up and down staircases, huffing to the beat, Bob leads the way.
He’s been with me for years, Bob has.
So much so, that it’s hard to imagine life without him.
And when at last I should come to life’s end, Bob will poke the coffin lid open.
Screaming, “Nope, not yet!”
Needless to say, Bob didn’t come by this life of mine easily.
And won’t leave without a good, knockdown fight.
Hell, I earned this belly of mine.

Coming to Terms

I’m told in years past a group of elders in New Zealand built their own coffins to come to terms with their eventual deaths. Something about sawing, sanding, and nailing the coffins together soothed their minds. And when at last they were laid to rest their community gathered in wonder. Here were those that met the Reaper eye to eye and didn’t blink. Afterward, their families and friends walked away with plans to build coffins of their own.

Down That Wild Hallway Of Desire

It’s a quantum hall of mirrors
in which every face is the same
and yet not so.
So many lives. So many choices.
And in the end
the ghost in the machine
is no one but us.
The dream is ours, my friends.
And yet we all die the same.
