I Drew The Death Card by Mona Mehas



I Drew the Death Card


I drew the Death Card

Of ghostly ghastly supernatural significance

Cherry-chocolate, lemon-lime

Flavors your choice, take your time

Time stands still

Shuffle the cards, draw down Death

No escape, your Death awaits.


Make a new beginning

Discretely discard moth-eaten memories

Old-fashioned outfits, lousy lovers

Pitch them all, slowly recover

Time to shine

Your new day is around the corner

Turn it into your new conclusion.


Death is both old and new

A beginning butterfly, our due demise

Gaping gasp or hopeful heartbeat

The one part of life we cannot cheat

Is this when?

If the future knowing is so important

Then why did we have yesterday?
