Mortality

We will surely live forever

on the edge of reality, spirit-stems

blooming invisible buds.How vicious death would be if final,

the coup-de-grace of all

our useless gatherings.

–excerpt from “Mortality” in A Light Dusting of Breath by Donna Pucciani (Purple Flag Press, 2014). First published in Home Planet News.
