Unwelcome Awakening

A collage poem here. I think each person believes, deep down, that he or she will live forever, even when the evidence is clearly against this idea.

Fool’s Paradise

how seldom
he had thought of
his health
that it came as a nasty shock when
he had no choice but to
visualize it, truthfully,
the congenial life
come and gone
arrested.
Here is the way under the surface of the world
narrow boundaries taken by surprise
in order to see them.
The room:
Who will be living in it then
