I love this poem by Major Jackson on dying, titled, "On Disappearing."
His language and imagery is exquisite.

About This Poem
"We are surrounded on all sides by the persistence of death and its implications. One could argue, as many have done, that all that we do is a compensation for this fact, including writing a poem." 

--Major Jackson
