Moss Man

We watch him pass and look down on his body

Heart attack from loneliness it looks like

We look down to see what we can learn from the body

He disappeared into the trees one day

Never to return

He just took a walk

And when they found him the moss

Was sprouting from his nose and fingers.

He must have contemplated no one

Since he had none.

What can we learn about death

That isn’t already known?
