(xiii death)


the next person she met was death.  on a white horse riding through a field

of   red   flowers.        the   sun  was  just  rising   &   she  had  nowhere   to  go

anyway.          his  touch  was  cold    but  his  smile   warmed  her  entire  soul.


immediately       her       past       faded       away      like     it      never     happened.


the    floating    world    is    not    heaven.       not    hell    or    purgatory    or   one

of      the      many      places      a      soul      can      go      after      dying.       it      was

a     beautiful     world.      a     sorrowful    world.      she    never    wanted  to  leave.


it  was  in  fact  a  world  made  just for  her.        a  world  her  brain  designed.      a


pageantry         of          silk         &         silence.         polite         propriety.            poetic

recitation           as           seduction          within           &          without          conversation.

dropping    lines    of    haiku    written    in    blood    secretly    from    silken    sleeves.


red    flowers    everywhere.     death     reappears.        hey    babe.     it’s    time   to   go.


no!   she   cried.    no!           he     smiled  &  said    i      know   it    seems    all     too    soon.

but  you’re  a  butterfly  now  babe.       time  to  fly.       time  to  leave  this  dark  cocoon.
