The Last Room You'll Ever Sleep In

from A Small Arrival by Swale



In the end, you know the time is right to be old: everyone likes you and everyone’s scared. “Don’t talk too loud. Don’t move too fast. Don’t wake him up, he’s beautiful whenever he’s like this.” Down the hall, daughters seldom call. Welcome mat and walls, crucifix and schawls. Lord, believe, breathe, and choose the Beatitudes, the King of Jews. Rules may lay you to bed but no one is better off dead. You could come back as dust. You could come back and rust. You could tell us that nothing is worse than waking up in a world God made up.
