i cannot go with you

because the day has already begun.
because the dogs have been at the body.
because it has been three days
and there will be a stench.
because tomorrow the rains will come.
because there are bills but no money.
because, look, things are not so bad
right here; at least there’s a breeze.
because you are not so pretty anymore
and i am not as young as i once was.
because we are too far gone for this rebirth.
