poem to remind myself that I am lucky to have more than one eye

Away and Offaway

I don’t know much about
most everybody on the planet

and that is why
I write to you

I can feel you
not watching

and it
doesn’t bother

this is inscribing
a tombstone
for a fifty years

so that it may stand
in the graveyard
and let others

it is okay to die

others have died before

it’s alright

it is saying it is

okay to inscribe
your tombstone
your entire life
and have nothing
but an invisible
towering grave
