from sitting beside you

the doctors are honest
and sometimes
too stupid to give you a promise
for another extension of
life

a hope that poisons the mind instead
and makes
our recent stand rigid and
unreasonable

for those who have seen the light
on one hand

its origins
its hang-ups and dreams
and you gaze at it all with pity
and it smiles at you
full of understanding saying its
name so sounding just like you...
