Before Motionless Death always some sort of unnerving movement Twirls: for a leaf, spasms for Human. I'd swear this poem is about The Spasmodically Dying. He goes ahead to do so. Final Disconnect!

Thank you and I agree not all disconnections are sad, perhaps just moving onward.

"final disconnect" So many meanings. Delightful word play. Delicious imagery

The imagery is fantastic. Favoured the visual effect so much that I read this haiku again and again. Thank you for the treat.
