Lazarus

 

experts claim

that death

is not an event.

people march

towards it

little by little.

in that crossing, their organs

begin shutting down

just like love

drowns

little

by

little

or a plant doesn’t dry up

from one moment

to the next.

 

that is why

scientists say

that unless you are

abso

lutely

certain

you should not

certify a passing.

 

people not only have two

options:

to be alive

or

to be

dead.

there are those who spare resources

and go about half alive

or half dead,

there is the indecisive ripple

and the agony.

there is the crossing

 

(people surely notice their own slow dying)

 

and there is also amendment

only the end reveals

the vector’s direction

say the experts

of the Lazarus phenomenon.

 

that is why they recommend to observe

carefully

when someone is fading out

to wait

not to adjectivize

the arch

so

quickly.
