PASSAGES

 

What is the precise moment

that someone dies - is

it when the soul leaves its

carcase to dift upwardly or

 

pirhouette around in silence

drinking in the ambience of a

strange old other world - and

why, when pronounced deceased

 

after the priest has visited to say

in terms of Holiness the magic

words said to be the password to

St Peter's gate, may someone else

 

arise from this carcass of their place

of rest, after the three gong strike

upon the clock has struck, thus

bucking sturdy systems of normality

Deep subject I accept, but I once met an ex serviceman who'd been stationed in the far east, and after becoming torpid, was later revived after a spending the weekend on a mortuary slab.
