#write2014 – 8 – If I Gotta Die

if i gotta die,

make it quick.

a camera flash

a shooting star

the first orgasm.

make the snipers bullet spin.

a cyclone to blow my life away.


if i gotta die,

make it spectacular.

produce it on broadway

name in lights and tony bound.

have beyonce sing my demise.

my fate in platinum coating.


if i gotta die,

take it serious.

treat life with reverence

mourn and begin loving each other again.

let it not be video taped.

don’t tweet my end.

let life begin again.
