deep within the catacombs

they live.

footsteps and assault of progress

haunt the silent ones below.

though silent, their groans echo

within the nooks and crannies of bone.

secretly they yearn the day

when they can say, hello.

Death arrived in pumpkin,

he crossed the Styx river.

When he arrived,

everyone yelled-

trapped in a metal box

he was beaten with time

vocal chords severed from years of strain

limbs broken from the weight of pain

thoughts stained the walls of his skull

the other night i awoke and couldn’t move

my legs and feet were sterilized with panic

my chest felt the force of something punching me down into the bed

i imagined my arms were reaching out for help

but no one heard me

and found Death snoring.

i sat up and stared,

at a mangled pumpkin in his lap.

a black swan laughed at my funeral

its cackles billowed out, mocking my memory

many gasped, still others laughed

they knew me well

a black swan laughed at my funeral

its wings swept the tears away

many were startled while others giggled

so I decided to sit a spell

a black swan laughed at my funeral

its splashing was heard above the wailing

many looked over in dismay

so I took flight aboard the swan

and vowed to return for you all
