Punctuation Marks

Poetry,
for him,
consisted of
impactful observations
which struck sharply upon mortality,
punctuating
like roadkill
here and there
the highway of life
to remind us of the
inevitable
end of the road,
and, so,
provoking our sympathies
for, and from,
what we will all become
as Death’s eighteen-wheeler
eventually overtakes us.
