This one's a little dark. Poem 1

The following poem was written during a class where we were discussing The Well Mouth by Philip Salom, an Australian poet. It's a dark collection of linked poems all concerning death in one way or another. I'll try and post a link to the book on Amazon, if there is one*.

Poem One

Take my life
and keep it
It is my present
to you

Guard it,
so it's safe

I'll be gone awhile

*Here's the link. They misspelt his name.
