duration of the crossing by Herb Kauderer

duration of the crossing
Herb Kauderer

every renewal of faith
in love & romance
is paler

a white marble gravestone
to innocence

a glowing personal Charon
guiding us each across
our own River Styx

a river that flows
with the melted bodies
of fears & hopes

on the far shore of the river
lies the final death of hopes

all that varies
is the duration
of the crossing
