Truth is Tart

You wrote about zombies
and now you’re dead.
You always seemed so sincere in your work
so the irony might have been lost on you
even were you living.

I can’t imagine
what would kill you.
You seemed so vibrant
in your art
and you’re younger than me.
It’s a shame
but I guess it’s plain
that the voice you use
might not always express every single truth
that you contain.

My words do not represent all of me
and neither,
I suppose,
would zombies be all of you
any more than either of us,
can be encapsulated in dreams.

I used to write quite a bit more.
