DEATH

There is no punctuation in Death
No exhales
Only one long Exhale

There is no Day
following night
Only one long Night

We do not wake up to Death
There are no musical notes
Interrupted by silence
Death is one long Silence

There is no punctuation in death
Death is one long shut-eye
Death is incapable of dreaming
It is one long Night
