I Wake in Ruptured DreamsTo Tyler Clay's previous piece     She Kept You AliveTo Tyler Clay's next piece
Stacks of paper
Like looking at stars
And feeling small
Or inconsequential.
So many with neither know
Nor mourn
The beauty or life
Or lack of both
In each sheet
Summing the entirety of
Any lifetime.
Letters and diplomas
Like eulogies in
Newspaper fading black
Fragments of ink
That people type and print
To experience immortality
That lays not beyond
The roses on your gravestone.
