Ode to Steve Jobs

We expected you
to evade it
with elegance and wit

you were too clever
for the commonness
of death.

Even though it was you
who famously said
it was the best invention
of life

the reset button
a new flood of souls

the inevitability of it
our excuse
to be ravenous
and absurd.

If you were scared in the end
unwilling to dissolve
I understand

but I like to imagine it was the way
you lived
a gargantuan exit
by way
of a wink.
