Death Is No Big Deal.

by Gary Hardaway

A switch goes off.
The room of you goes dark

The suite of dark rooms
extends forever.
It's no big deal.

Just a transfer of energy
from one state to another.
It's physics. Nothing more.

A shift of particles
from one state to another.
I'm not afraid

though my black room is just
a few steps in some direction
I can't see just yet.
