If Anyone Asks

If anyone asks
say that I got lost
staring at the sun

If they ask
why?
say that I'm laying
in a bed undone

If they ask
how did this happen?
say I simply lacked
mental discipline

If they ask
is it possible
that we can save him?
Say
possibly
but I don't know
it's as predictable
as the current
of the adjacent winds

Say that I am
not worth the worry
or wonder

Please just say
I'll figure it out
and I'm doing fine

    Then let the sands flow
    let me be unknown
    if I am not worth
    conversation
    or at least
    breaking the ice
    let the flame burn
    and the wax dry
    I have done my best
    the coin is flipped
    and I will probably die
    before heads
    or tails

    But what if no one asks,
    You’re never mentioned,
    Do we defy our task,
    Transgress convention?

    Do we intrude your name
    Into conversation
    Like someone rude and crass
    With provocation;

    What if the room goes still
    With hesitation
    Then resumes its shrill
    Cavitation.

    It is always a mistake
    To fade anonymous,
    Maintain, partake,
    Be eponymous.
