final escape / Raymond Federman

how will it happen
the final exitus
will it be violent
will it hurt
or will it be quiet 
full of silence 
will the sordid images 
that have haunted us 
be suddenly erased 
or will they be replayed 
endlessly replayed 
in virtual reality 
will we fall 
or will we rise 
or simply pass through 
as one goes through 
an open door 
to enter a room 
perhaps it will be 
an escape 
another escape 
from the little box 
where it all started 
among empty skins 
but this time it will be 
the final escape 
from the great cunt 
of existence 
and this time 
without any gurgling 
will the stolen sugar be 
as sweet as the first time 
and what of the moon 
tiptoeing on the roof 
will she smile upon us 
or remain indifferent 
will there be words 
left to describe what 
is taking place 
words and silences 
or will there be only 
cries and whispers
