a close friend dies a good death

farewell the day complete - maybe a whisper, maybe a scream
maybe signs of passing time wasted, yet a scream of time to come
farewell the day approaching
farewell, farewell.

the lids of eyes and jars open. ajar.
a jar to keep the vitals, a jar to keep the eyes
a container for the organs, since you can't contain yourself

the embalmer is on the line
he bids you to be bold. or italic. or underlined.
he bids you to be, as today you are not.
farewell the day replete - maybe bliss, maybe a dream.
