a true story

Death came to me in a dream last night.

He carried no scythe, wore no cloak; he looked like Special Agent Anthony DiNozzo in the TV show NCIS.

Death said, “You know why I’m here, don’t you?”

“Yes,” I said. “I’m going to die.”

“Not tonight,” he said.

I was confused and furled my brow.

“February 14, 2011, 5:46 a.m.,” he said with a wearily smile.

“So, what am I to do with the rest of my life?” I asked.

Death laughed ruefully and poofed in a wisp of smoke.
