The Immortal Apathetics (Zardoz)

by phillipmedhurst

 

Immortality confounds

our zest for life.

Apathy has frozen us

To monuments.

 

Come, Oblivion, as friend:

a longed-for harm,

Pyramidic heavy, light

as chambered dust.

 

Death Eternal grant, O Lord

of Sudden Ends.

Dozed with soporific balm

your bullets zing.
