  • I listened to scientists talk death, dying for an afternoon.
    Subjective anecdotes spun into spiritual musings,
    astral planes and after lives.

    In the end, I realize, I don't care.
    This life is my Near Death Experience.
    It makes everything sweet.

    No romantic notion, I love those old bones for crying out
    "A good death will be a good life."
    For shouting, "Live!"
