do-not-resuscitate…

do-note-resuscitate
i sit

beneath
pools
of words
given by those
who love life
i’m
afraid to rise
above
these warm waters
to chance
some
off-hand contact
with
new
waves of wisdom
spewed
from
pulpits
and
political platforms
more
often
than not
all that lies
on the surface
is the flotsam
of society
and
polluted words
of hate
so
no need
to suffocate
in ignorance
when
i can die
a natural death
of
enlightenment
