Let it Go

Don’t listen to the ones
telling you how
to live your life—
just listen to how
they lived.

The dead stay dead—
though, I too watch
those late night shows where
ghosts are hunted with
gadgets and handheldometers.

At the end, a good set
of directions are nice—
but I say float like dust
or a bug into the heavens—
avoiding planes and birds.
