Afterwards

By: Isabella Nilsson

What is death?

Do words after it make sense

is there a black man at a black typewriter

saying it is his turn to come along

her turn to sing her song

and tears out the page

that she may sing after death

but only the black man in the black room without human meaning

can hear it.

It is his background music.

I want you back, dear.

I can hear you
