Bardo Tango: Verses in Shadow’s Dance with Death

Dance with Death

Oh, cessation of life,
You wish to merely cease me?
You can’t do that.
Are you my wife?

Broadly smiling,
Striding through your nooks & valleys—
No fear—
Rainbow strained; Jack Daniel induced,

I have more than accepted
The inevitable—
Fact upon fact upon fact deduced,
That when I peer into the future,
My merger with destiny
Is lucid & clear:

Steering towards you,
My dear,
Gives me a rush,
Higher than Babel.
A fable beyond the sky.

For nobody came back
& said death spoke,
Reap what you owe
& referred to Sheol?

So here I am,
Refusing to be taken
By you in sleep,
But ready,
Face to face,
You I will greet.

So be it.
