Rejoice you are not here yet, flat dead, with the rest of us
in one of those earthen plots where they chisel your name
in granite headstones; instead we lie, naked and useless,
day in and night out, waiting as an asthmatic waits for breath,
like a diabetic waits for insulin, as a paraplegic waits for legs,
like a womanless man waits for love in a splendid display
of apathy (This is it This is it) This is the time to lie
down and be counted, to become a statistic lost in the columns
of life’s statistics: the divorces, the college grads, the deaths
by tsunami, by earthquake, by rope or carbon monoxide,
Viagra prescriptions, cancer, the next order in a pizzeria,
your ejaculations, the number of vitamin B12 pills
in the plastic bottle located on your bathroom sink, next
to the sharp razor and mirror you look into every morning
and pray to your God for another day to live and breathe.
