Words Spoken Without Passion's Breath - Poem by David McLansky

Words spoken without passion's breath
Mocks the receiver as in a jest;
Exchanging mere formality
As substance for sincerity.

Do not mourn for me when I am dead
Neglect me as you did in life
Forget me when my soul has fled
Be free of all my mortal strife.
