That Final Breath - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

What describes a Poet,
let me count the ways

To once describe a morning,
emerging through the haze

What describes a season,
its leaves from green to brown

What describes a heartbeat,
when your lover can't be found

What describes a reason,
with excuses cast away

What describes a child's laugh,
joyous on display

What describes a place called home,
to a soldier sent to war

And what describes that final breath
—to an old man wanting more

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April,2019)
