Flashforward

No you won’t go all at once
There are hints, intimations
Someone whispers in your ear
Gives you the cheat code
When nobody’s looking

One day maybe
A piece goes missing
Nothing too important
A tiny detail
In the vast mosaic

But this time you notice
And something you’d heard
About a friend of a friend
Comes back to haunt you
Then it all comes together

No you won’t go all at once
But one day you wake up and know
In the marrow of your bones
That sooner or later
You will go
