lifetime of spring/

©2022 Michael Raven

i think my dying
is soon.

i don't mind

there is no fear

i can't say why

why

why

-=O=-

but i sense
the ticktockclock
staccatostuck
fivesplayedfingers
taptaptapping
on the linoleumed floor
is where you'll find me
with a dreamysmile
and a smudge
of violent lipstick blackred
on the corner of a lip
while everyone will sing birds sing
toosoon-toosoon
but it was anything anyone gets
a lifetime of spring
someshort somelong
