SO SAD

So sad in one life

he could not communicate.

(the rest of humanity left behind)

 

Maybe he dragged baggage

from another life with him

compartmentalized excess

which kept him disconnected

a lone lion in the wilderness

a sad old man dissociated

from the mainstream of life,

the hospice room

a perfect place to die.

(alone)
