Image for the poem You Do It Only Once

You Do It Only Once

The thing about dying
beyond the blushing
waiting for the silent butler
you do it only once
with a shadow of mascara
lifting your vanity
in dreams of unspoken truths
behind the veil
climbing up the staircase
as death has a nasty habit
of not staying in one place
because it takes up space
Written by adagio
