Plato instructed
practice death each day
weighing the lesser things
against the greater.
in the artist's eyes
practicing death
we see aloneness
astonishment
horror
frozen forever in time.

awash in trivialities
our lives play out
without instruction
unpracticed
unlearned
doomed to endless reenactment
of biological imperatives
now and then pondering
our fleeting puzzling existence
spiraling
like a leaf descending
from a high branch
frozen forever in time.
