It's just poetry, it won't bite

Frieda Landau’s most recent poem to appear here was Small Talk (January 2013).


By Frieda Landau

We start to die the moment we are born
Thrust from the velvet darkness of the womb
That first breath leads inexorably to the last
The grubby child happily digging
In the dirt is digging his own grave

    Powerful indeed…sweet and dark at the same time. Like dark chocolate…hmmm, I feel a poem coming on. :)

    I like the happily digging part. We are all heading there, may as well be happy.
