From The Deathbed Of An Old Man

I see all their faces, heavy with grief,

And realize that their grief is meant for me,

But I cannot do anything to stop it.

Their grief has a life of its own that is now

Detached from the object of mourning,

Which lies here, in turns, patient, penitent,

And sometimes just plain annoyed.
