Dead Not Gone

Just because you are dead doesn’t mean you are gone

All the words you have said
(mean or clean or somewhere in between)
Live in the ears and the hearts and the minds of its hearers

Your face and your body
Captured somewhere analog and probably digital
Touchable and indelible more than your bones and your ashes

Just because you are dead doesn’t mean you are gone
It simply means you have ended
And where you have ended is where
I, and everyone, and everything you have touched
Now must continue onwards for you

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
