From the collection '8 poems about me and you'.


of the infinite number of ways I might die
the spectre whose shape fills my deathly dull days
the ritual I'm drawn to despite what I've said
my stoic assertion 'I'm fine on my own'
my penchant for wishing to leave with a bang

involves only me warm in sun on my bed 
a view with soft sleep and no pain 
and the touch of another (i'll take it all back)
to not be alone at the end.

I know how lonely it can get.'
