Not Afraid of Dying

tuesday was the day

to get vaccinated so i

could hold our new grandboy

dreading the side affects

i entered the Montrose

County Health and Human

Services where it costs $40 instead

of Walgreen’s $64.99 i hate the

medical industrial complex and

don’t darken it’s doors except in

rare occasions like this, yes, as i dreaded

i got feverish and achy, so tired

everything i did required all my will power

but lying awake last night i wondered

if maybe i had actually gone there

to speak to the guy who was a diabetic

in a coma for ten days he said rather

die than go through that again which

started us talking about not fearing death

and i told him about my friend Silvana and

how she told me, I don’t believe in anything

after but if there is something i’ll come back

and let you know, which she did. as i got

up to get my shot he was smiling and we were

celebrating in a very small way our connection

to each other and everything forever in the universe
