105. Slash Immortal
I don’t fear death.
Death is there to be ignored.
Death is there to be challenged, defeated.
Death is there to be beaten in an arm wrestle
a card game, Russian Roulette, a rusted needle,
He’ll let you know when it’s your time sure enough.
In the meantime, why let it concern you?
No. I don’t let death bother me.
If anything I gently mock it.
I prod it and it feels pliable
I shake it between my teeth
I face it with bemusement
but I don’t fear it.
