    An interesting take on death and its post-life process seen before death. The lower case personal pronouns could suggest someone becoming humble in the forgone conclusion of death. After all the second we are born the only definite thing is death, even before taxes kick in.

    looking down
    as an old worry
    to my feet
    the child dreams about
    the length of his life
