on death

Posted on April 25, 2012


dead rat on NYC subway platform. it was loved by me before it died.

today I looked in the mirror and said to myself,
“you’re going to die in about 30 years.”
then I burst into tears.

I looked some more and said,
“so many people, so much love. it hasn’t been a bad life.”

and cried some more, but smiled through my tears…
because love makes life worth death.
