Flipped Page

Like plantain
in the heat of getting fried
sides are flipped
to get it done.
Similarly, a flipped coin
decides the game’s starter
and in semblance
a switch is flipped
for light to stay or be put off.
But let’s dwell on the switch a bit;
a young man woke up
kissed his wife good morning
responded to the greetings of his kids
made his presence felt online
switched on his day
to see the promises envisioned
in his night sleep.
Against the run of play
the switch flipped
cutting off the life of a healthy man
the whole community cried “adieu”
his page flipped over
…goodnight.

Travel safe, Chris.
