death as a post

death wears a
merciful face
when it comes
courting
the moribund

but expect no
bouquet of
sweet-smelling
roses or frosted Cupid
cards sent by mail

there lies a jackal’s face
behind the mask

full well is the intent
of healing decay

yet in conclusion
death wears a
conciliatory face
the end of
suffering
a welcome gift
no matter that
its special delivery
should
bring
