salut murim and a bag of popcorn

on mortality

By TestPublished about a year ago 1 min read
salut murim means "hello, death" in Romanian. it views mortality with acceptance.

salut murim and a bag of popcorn

right next to the watches that hug the tempo

with arms gentle and muscular and squeezing

66 minutes against the passing hour

i weave them into the fabric of my chest

which one day will decay like ice cream,

popsicles, or tangerines,

or everything

everything underneath the sun and beneath my feet

under your bed or in your closet

wherever you may be, i kiss your cheek

salut murim

sad poetry
