Why Some People Live While Others Are Set Free by Robert L. Penick

It’s not a crapshoot, really.
Not a selection as random
as, say, lightning, which
has its own laws and logic,
general and ambiguous
though they be.
It has to do with time
and its subdivisions,
eternity broken into
bite-sized spans of life.
Each one a mote in
an infinite eye.
Sometimes just a glance
in twilight.
