Death is Noble, Dying Ignoble


Life degrades dying
and honors death.
The living hasten
our span of breath
into ground or urn
and call it rest.

Dying lust,
feral and unseemly,
honors life in miserly
rasping its last gust.

Proud life scorns to draw another breath
and embraces the still grip of death.
