Anticipation & Finality

The interaction
of the
surface diversity
of human
behavior generates
violence &
& hatred,
but at
a deeper
level where
words fail
& truth
floats in
icy silence,
we’re all
the same.


The first
is sensing
that we
grow old
& die.


The second
is when
it happens.

Thanks to Art Beck for the inspiration for this poem…
