a poem about charlie barnett who died last year from cancer

Moonlight, silver light on my black face Mixes with the metal Tangles
with the steel My smooth bald head I-V bottle sparkles I marvel at the 
sky in between vomiting 

I marvel because of the sky's enormity And how small I am In the steel
chair I recall once that I was bigger A giant An oddity Before such 
belongings as germs Worms and poisonous things 

How quickly life went by The blur of landscapes Speeding past and I dare
not touch With a shaking finger I count a billion stars Before the 
medicine puts me momentarily Out of the pain.
