Tease The End

like when the commentator says
"we'll be right back with more..."
craving the continuance
and not wanting to know the end
when it is already here
that this is all there is
that there is no that different from this
in this world
set apart from the moon
but also set apart from the whole

so we are critical
Is that in the code?
we wonder at night when we wake
maybe not those thoughts
but they return
always a little different
like growing cousins
at face value

the mullen that grew in the back yard
appeared like a cactus
and no one knew what it was
until she said what it was
& I thought, for an instant
"it could be dangerous"
but that was its pull

CALL: When I get Alzheimer's I hope I don't lose it all the time and punch you in the head.

RESPONSE: That's ok, I'll wrap your hands in towels.

Apple Sauce

we come into the world and eat apple sauce
then leave the same way
