the end

sometimes life ends
not heroically
or swiftly
or quietly in our sleep
(like we thought it would)
but slowly
slowly
taking our dignity
and smashing it against sterile walls
and slowly
slowly
taking our personality
and muddling it
with tubes, treatments
and radiation
‘til there’s nothing left
nothing
nothing
