Life's Grammar - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

this his mighty COULD
this his mere MAYBE
Death snickers at Life's grammar

he clutched at skies
tried to hold on to stars
Death sighs: '...shhhh, just let go! '

the world slipped
through his fingers
like dreams...dreams

he let go
of his name
became the unknown
