up in the middle of the night

Up in the middle of the night
on my way to the bathroom
I dropped dead.
Lying in the hall
in my final second,
I saw all to come:
the weddings and dances
the funerals
all the wars
a million suns
rising and setting
a small blue and white ball
spinning before me
forever over in an instant. mjh
