Final words

If I knew my life was sinking
into the soil like rain
what words would I ink
into your ears

my final signature
an echo of so many days

would I be funny
like that comedian who complimented
his wife on an ice-cream soda
that didn’t exist

or Churchill
who pronounced his boredom
and then slipped
like a mole
into the earth

Noel Coward was perfect
when he said

goodnight my darlings
I’ll see you tomorrow

but this makes me weep
and I haven’t even seen his plays

I suspect I would hold your hand
as I floated away
my mouth whispering
nothing new

I adore you.
