Ash to ash,
Double-tap to the
Head and heart?
Today it starts
And ends and begins again–the quest
To set aside something meaningful
Without much meaning:
To give up without giving up
What’s it mean?
The certain thing is
Nothing is. But how to see
Through doubt to faith in nothing
Pass your thumb across my brow;
Leave a mark–make it dark
Let the sign be all there is to see
Of me: a testament to all who care that I
Have given up.
