no press coverage…

no press coverage

no one
transcribed the event
a last breath
issued by
just
an everyman
no one famous
and
most likely
forgotten by those
he once called
friend
a last breath
offered as
a prayer
to some unseen god
a god who’s
an undocumented immigrant
in a world he once created
a god working to harvest
a crop of souls
a last breath
soon joined
by a thousand more
the night breeze
against
your face

  1. it is tough if someone dies lonely but you know – all the famous – what advantage do they have when they find the news about their death in the paper – honestly – i don’t need that
