inspired by kcentric, suziqsmith, and some memories
here’s the text for any muddiness issues:

Who will close my eyes for me?
When my last exhalation slips out unseen
No BPM left inside the machine
The piercing wink-out of a CRT screen-
Who will close my eyes for me?
Dust gathers on glass
Reflecting personal effects
Fingerprints and water remain
Bedside of what used to be
Who will close my eyes for me?
“Rest” is a verb; impossible now
“In peace” is subjective
-How can meat get upset?
Terrible solemn tenderness
As bald as lust,
As stark as an empty stomach,
Older than speech-
The frozen silence swells to fill the heart
Of the unknown one
Who will close my eyes for me.
