The seventh perpendicular by JOHN SMALLSHAW

John Smallshaw
The seventh perpendicular.

In the mortuary
where death is quite acceptable
but not compulsory
I
resist the urge to abrogate responsiblity
and learn my lines.

There are times to breathe and not believe and times that both are true
as a rule
I choose one of the two,

the hand of fate would make a date but trust is not his name,
ask him where’s his other hand or are
they both one and the same?

..and if I lay down on a slab
they’ll say,

dead?, but he looks fab

I have to say that I agree
when I am in
the mortuary.
