written on a sunny day in graveyard by Rob Plath

every illusion 
you gather 
is like 
flicking the back
of the reaper’s skull 
hardly noticed 
but death is keeping 
a tally 
& is slowly executing 
its revenge 
a few lines carved in yr flesh here 
a few silver hairs there 
a sharper curve in yr spine 
a shooting pain in an organ 
one day death will 
just spin around 
tho & catch you by the wrist
as you flick yr forefinger 
& drag you under 
dark layers 
as all yr little illusions pop 
an empty house 
full of bursting bubbles
