DEATH LIVES

DEATH LIVES 
© Farouk Asvat


Geared for pleasure
down the highways
you diced with death
speeding
pass
the fleeting
hours
of
life
Abruptly
              your
                     swerving
         steering
                        pleaded
A moment more.
Death riding
On the wrong side of life
Gulped miles of your unstarted journeys
Spewed a bloody contortion
For us to behold
