Eulogy for a Tombstone

we are all living

we are all dying

some of us chose to remember this fact

some of chose to forget

some of us could not forget

even if we tried

But most of us

travel these paths

wandering in and out of knowing and forgetting

awareness and omission

deception and description

trying not to choke on the smoke

while

straining

our eyes

towards the light
