death

death
has not evolved
in any way that may
be useful to the
living. one does not
remember the feeling
of death
like one remembers
hot glass looks
like cold glass

or do not wear
open-toed shoes
and
report all
chemical spills
immediately
. for some
reason, one does not
forget the weight
of overlooking these
warnings the way
one forgets
how death
burns, cold and hot,
irrespective of distance,
seeking no
acknowledgement
.
