Why When How

The what-if game used to be beloved
                      The never ending fantasy
                                    questionnaire

The reality is possibilities
            may be inevitability especially
         when we comfort ourselves with
                                                   what -ifs
             and when it’s no longer a game
              of wry imaginative fucking satire
                                                         bullshit
              and you’re staring at a casket
            that’s the last question
                                   you’ll ever ask
     the questions come beginning with
                       why
                        when
                          how
                         & the answer is silent
                           or the answer is manic
                             sudden panic & abrupt
                                                             wails
     
         keening through space and time
            what if
