|Chair With the Wings of a Vulture, 1960, Salvador Dali
Wanting to close my eyes but they remain wide
Unable to turn from the bittersweet beauty.
Never pictured Death to come in brilliant lights
with a calming, absolution unlike Life offered.
Serenity washes over me as I let go of all
that came before this angelic vulture
spread her wings and welcomed me into sleep.
