Closing The Circle

Happy endings,

the folly of youth


The aged

alone to portend


Distance a comfort,

 expiration afar



mostly pretend


Death as a concept,

corpse underground


As different as night

is to day


Two ends of the spectrum,

inextricably linked


By time

—ever holding its sway


(Rosemont College: October, 2020)
