Is this life we live,
the life we know,
really death
from another plane

Is the hurt we suffer,
and the struggle we bear,
the result
of another realm

Are the visions we see,
and the insights unnamed,
but a window
into that world

Is what we call life,
what they call death,
with its reckoning
left untold

(Rosemont Pennsylvania: April, 2020)
