Death In Brooklyn

by A. Sea Herndon

Death in Brooklyn

Jesus knew

what we don’t know

what pilgrims learn

along the road:

To be reborn

one first must die

life breaks us all

yes, you and I

Sometimes these wounds

are fatal

sometimes

they’re neonatal

I welcome Death

Death to sin

Death to the failure

that I’ve been

Death to Self

Life for others

Love, welcome me,

your newborn brother

Oh Death!  A. Sea & Death at the Brooklyn Museum.

Oh Death! A. Sea & Death at the Brooklyn Museum.
