More to religion
than pleasing
your imaginary friend

One sunny summer day
a swallow sang sweltering
and sought shade
seeming to sense
suddenly how soon
the shadow seals
all songs in silence.

Singing the more sweetly then
since songs must end
she soared swiftly
out of sight
to serenade the sun
and such others as
she saw so high.

Now we know why he never became a poet.

A meditation on death from Scooper's godless high school years.
