A Biography

A burst of light, and the world’s gone dead.

Only a dial tone and an exhale

as your lungs pack their bags and hit the road.

Your heart has had enough of the same old drumbeat.

Your brain throws down the microphone

and pushes you off the soapbox.

A body finally turns against its inhabitant

and coughs you out like phlegm

and you land on a railing somewhere

to infect the next person

who clutches at you for support.
