Those molecules (Padgett)

I'm starting to take the idea of death as the end of life somewhat harder than before. I used to wonder why people think that life is tragic or sad. Wasn't it also comic and funny? And beyond all that, wasn't it amazing and marvelous? Yes, but only if you have it. And I am starting not to have it. The pictures are disintegrating, as if their molecules were saying, "I've had enough," ready to go somewhere else and form a new configuration. They betray us, those molecules, we who have loved them.
Ron Padgett, from "Album"
