giving the supreme gift by Bogdan Dragos

Gobblers / Masticadores // Editores: Manuela Timofte / j re crivello

there was no
gentleness
in mother's touch
as she seized him
by the shoulder
and stood him
down

"Never disturb your
grandfather again," she
told him

Never disturb a man
who is thinking
about death

He had learned the lesson
so well
that he started
the practice
himself
And he wasn't even old

Death was fascinating
to think about

it was the topic of
the wise
while the ignorant and
foolish
avoided it
and associated it with
fear

Death is
the opposite of
a curse
It is a gift

and the wisest of all
is he who
understands that
when it comes to
gifts
giving is more important
than receiving

Give freely
give abundantly

give the
supreme gift
