Just Another Choking Victim

Love doesn’t die quickly
nor gently

it dies with a fight

like the mongrel dog
and the stray cat
in the back
of a poor Mexican

like the punch drunk boxer
who needs just one more fight
to prove something to himself

like the torch of Ulysses
which once burned
so brightly
but that has now
found its way to ashes

I choke on a glass of water
and that too is love

everything is love
choking and killing me

– A. Ramirez

“Just Another Choking Victim” taken from my new book of poetry Poems of Love and Perversion”.
