Destination Peace

termination, death
those sorts of things, that sort of stuff
endings and their like
provoke in me
an emptiness
a desperation
knowing that
what commences will cease
induces cowardice
it can’t be helped
try as I might
fear triumphs
commands the monkey brain
I cower
from passing days
an episode that begins
will come soon
to previews for next week
and add it up
soon the series concludes
production wraps
a grand finale
laying down on the floor
to die, all battles complete
the war is over
the smoke disperses
what’s left is peace
in which to rest
