“Of Old Age”
Digital comic. August 2021.

   One day I will wake up and it will all be over.
    The world will run out of places to burn a thousand times bare and flood a thousand feet deep.
   I will go to sleep, and there will be no heaven waiting-- I simply end.
   Hot shower, fresh fruit, new shoes when a pair is torn.
   One lover, old friends, a baby dove just born.
   May I die of old age?
