352–I Kiss This World

last night i dreamed i was dying
the only thing that was disconcerting
the speed at which this inevitability
came i’ve lived with death as my
companion since in my twenties
we made peace became friends
embraced this place i’m going
following long lost friends making
the world here now so shimmering
less threatening more near
the lights will of course go out
for me not that far away another
inevitable journey so like life
i kiss this world but do not cling
