Be Death

You are proud
and mightily so

after all these years
and that act of faith

in your defiance is
the same as priests

speaking at funerals
though they offer
different promises

so arguing against
or making it sweet
is the same nothing

of hope that hoping
alone cannot make

and dreadful as it is
or is not in thinking

I’ve seen enough of
what it was for now
