self evident

 
    what you know you know
        but forget you forget 
            is that the they in 
                     they are all dying 
             is really a we
                     [ as in ]
                 we are all
                         dying   
                               all the time –
          husbands,
                 mothers,
                      children,
                             lovers
             the homeless
                      the filthy rich 
                                every son-of-a-bitch 
                       in the game… 
            since I started this sentence
                  a hundred thousand people 
                             simply swallowed their name
                                            . 
                                
[i have no wish to be morbid, it is simply that people always seem more human to me coming back from funerals; perhaps if we realized more often how intricately such
events are woven into our own lives…we  would behave better]
