He Is Like Death

There is a stranger in the house.
There is an uninvited guest in the house.
There is a phantom cockroach in the house.

I don’t know where he came from.
I don’t know where he’s going.
I don’t know if he’s still around.

He appeared suddenly one night.
He disappeared suddenly the next morning.
He reappeared suddenly that night.

Am not sure if I should look out for him.
Am not sure if he would return if he did leave.
Am not sure at all.

He is like death.
He can come suddenly.
He can surprise.

Should I live fretfully?
Should I brace myself?
Should I make peace that he can come any time?

Am I ready if he comes again?
Am I ready for (re)death?
Am I ready for rebirth?
