A Metaphor For A Funeral - Poem by RIC BASTASA

indeed it is wonderful to entertain
that constant idea that beds are made for
but i must be deluding myself for a long time
as time
swiftly corrects me
and so shortly,
that beds in fact are made more for the resting place
of the sick and the dying,
the anxious and the depressed,
the restless people engulfing one pill to another
to get the blessings of sleep
soon it will become
another metaphor for
a funeral
and euphemism
for death.
