Another Good Death


author's note:

I don't want to write about my experience--I want to write about our experience.

 
ANOTHER GOOD DEATH

I chose this tomb--

I lay myself down
in the deep earth
because I've learned
not to fight
what I must obey.

I surrendered that life

so my heart could root down strong

to draw rich water up
from the pith of the pit.

I needed this death
so that I might live.
