Judge not…

Consensual co-suicides.
A long time in the planning.
Only a few friends knew.
Thank goodness I wasn’t one,

They wanted to take their leave
When they were both still healthy,
Still enjoying life. and with money to leave behind.
And the hell with the rest of us?


I guess so.
They said over and over how brave Nyel was.
Maybe.  But maybe he was just honorable — thinking of how it would be for the rest of us,
For those who loved him,

Do we  really have free choice?
As in flipping off the rest of the world when it suits us?
For me, there is only one stage of this “grief.”
Anger.  Or perhaps this isn’t grief at all.
