Steve and Ronnog Seaberg perform Ronnog's poems at Eyedrum Art & Music Gallery, Atlanta 2002.
Play golf while waiting for death
playing possum or bingo dance or sing or
hold your breath for
Do you think we are playing with death
whatever we do
raising children, selling things
or going to school?
Even when we think
we are challenging
death who doesn't do anything.
Nor do we think it will do more harm
to lose a limb, a kidney, an arm
compared to losing
or burning in hell
when you can't see,
feel, or smell.
