Requiem: How Was It You Died?

crossing the path &
tilting the raft.
cozy warm hands,
let them wrap

stories yet untold
many a time we died, even before we

actually died.
…died beyond river Styx,
& none saw the canoe
drift with our passions, slowly

they went; they never
came back

how was it you died, friend?

where you cremated as I?
was it painfully excruciating?
i wanted to tell you
how it was i died, but death
promised me nothing.

did you see the milky way
when coming by air?
i see you are wet,
or did you come by water
from Neptune?

tell me how it was you
died
for i have journeyed this far
to seek an audience with you
& none

How was it you felt when
you lost the ones?
