Family Life and Death

A family is something
that slowly dies around you
each piece removed
a diminishment of your world
your life
like it or them or not
thousands of years behind you
and possibly, potentially
for thousands after
the fuse burns
straight through you
in its wake
of sparking and hissing
ashes
and more of that to come
as it burns down
toward an irrevocable conclusion
