Last Poem - Poem by David McLansky

I am dying every minute
My soul is slipping away
I cannot stop life’s progression
I cannot halt my own decay;

My poetry lays in cartons
Stacked in boxes in my room
My history of failed loving
Dusty echoes of my doom;

My muscles grow more rigid
Self conscious of the pain
I fear the loss of movement
I’ve who moved in vain
