How the Body Prepares Itself by Gary Hardaway

My death is close enough now
that it corrupts the smells

and flavors of the world
and plants its swollen face

at the edge of every
view and vista.

So this is how the body
prepares itself to leave—

by spoiling the here and now

with chronic ill at ease.
