Of Angels and Arias

I leaned in closer

heard death lick the corners of the room,

felt It slink and sift inexorably, and

watched the ebb and flow of breath temper to silence.

    1. Ellespeth- I looked at the photo for a long time, read some other contributions, and drew a blank. I heard an interview with Elvis Costello on the radio. The part of the interview I came in on was Costello talking about his father’s passing. It was the inspiration I needed. Thanks for reading.
