Thoughts On Dying by Mikel K

His death makes me
vividly aware of
my own mortality.
Where do they bury
people who die
with no money.
It is the type of grave
that I will own.
He was a musician
and he fell on the stage.
It was to be his final
He left many behind
who loved him.
Play your harmonicas
and guitars frequently.
You never know
when you will blow
or strum your final note.
