The weight of one more less...

(remembering Thalmann)

How much more burden

of sad loss and pain

of lingering memories

can old frail shoulders

bear in the sunset?

One after another

the younger ones depart

into nothingness

(some naively as if

to a better world

no one knows)...

Whom does it help

to uncrowd this world

with one more less,

when it adds to the weight

of loneliness?
