Death Row

A man on a death row

He is dying, but dying slow
and any moment the light will enter
in a damp morbid cell
in which rests a body, alive though but barely
to announce his day of execution.

Execution! the word is funny
for how are they going to execute?
The plan is simple
to kill the body that remains
as murder of soul was achieved
on a death row.
He waits and waits for the light
that will bring death
to the physical being of
the man on a death row.
