Death does not discriminate





Death does not discriminate.

There is no sexual
racial
religious
or political
bias

Death does not stifle
a solitary
human
right

Death comes riding
upon sweet summer's breath
and the scrying cries of eagles

Death does not laugh nor cry

It does not
hate
just as it does not
love

Like the universe
death is an unsympathetic force
neutral to all that exists

and unyielding
to human
suffering.



Unlike life.

Life is blood pumping
from atriums and ventricles
splitting atoms of breath
to capillaries, veins, and arteries

a massive systemic loop
bringing what is
not
needed
to the tree of life
the body
being
lungs
a pulmonary roller coaster
like the wind
whistling through pines
settling in leaves
sprawled
as innocent bystanders
in the earth and dirt

Life is subjective.

Unlike death.

Death 

does not discriminate.
