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.
