And Moses Was Afraid

Surely the thing has become
Known, full-grown, my own alone.
The punishment for life is
Death, the lesser punishments
Mere rounding errors? No, death
Is no punishment. Dying
Is the punishment for life,

And there are so many ways
To suffer it. I'm begging,
I'm hungry for a bad beat
As the poker players say.
I have called out the I am
In my head and in these lines.
I understand fate, but wait.
