just as saying “I love you”
or “I’m sorry”
may come too late –
while slipping out of this life
on your back
mute and alone
surrounded by strangers.

and not faith?
why signs
and no horizons?
why flesh
but no sight?

why not faith
and no following?
why not horizons
with no signs?
why not sight
but no flesh?
