death is not that bad


(gevonden in Euthanasiel, het internationale tijdschrift  van
Euthanasiekliniek Vlaanderen,
een instituut opgericht
met steun van
de Europese Gemeenschap)

death by starvation
is slow & tender:
the gradual weakening
of your bodily functions
softens your resistance
& takes away your pain
enables you finally
to  think clearly
& when your thoughts
come to their conclusion
your brain lets go
of everything.

death is not that bad
a distant fear that you
once had

death by disease
can be annoying
when you’re not
among the happy few –
strung on morphine
death can be much fun
– but when the nurse
has left the building
you need to get inside
the pain:
there is delight deep
inside the core
of suffering just
like there is more light
within the darkness
that will come.

death is not that bad
it’s just a thing that you
just had

death by strangling
is a pearl of joy
the lack of oxigen
will make your body
quiver, quake &
you will come &
you will shit &
urinate: all your love
will be released
into the emptyness
of your beloved
universe.

death is not that bad
it’s just a wish that you
once had

death by drowning
is quite exquisite
it’s our number one
for folk without hope
you get to swim a lot
amongst your equals
& then the cold
makes you feel
truly old & ready
for the journey

death is not that bad
it’s just the life  you
never had

death by bullet
or accident is sudden
it’s like waking from
a dream into the moment
of a sound before
it’s there
your heart may still
be pumping in despair
but that’s just
another metaphor:
there’s no one there

death is not that bad
it’s just a way of life
that says:

you’re there.
