When You Die?
How will you feel when you die?
Will you laugh or will you cry?
Burned to ash or in the earth?
What’s it to you? What’s it worth?
But have you thought, I wonder?
What’s it like to go under?
Rest in peace, don’t you assume?
Urn placed in a noisy room?
What if your neighbor’s a bore?
Or she has an awful snore?
What if you can still feel pain?
Have an itch or poorly lain?
What if your legs need a stretch?
Read a book or make a sketch?
Fulfill an urge? Take a piss?
How will you cope with all this?
Losing your eyes and your hair?
What about the smell down there?
What if someone kicks your urn?
Covered in mold or a worm?
What if you get tummy groans?
Or a dog digs up your bones?
What if someone likes bone stew?
Uses your ash for a hue?
Makes your marrow into salt?
How will this be made to halt?
So much to consider, yes?
Isn’t it a horrid mess?
You won’t despair this, will you?
Something else you’d rather do?
That’s not the game, don

Chadhiyana RosyDreams by jmdesantis

We did it! Yesterday evening, Rosarium Publishing (the publisher for my comic, Chadhiyana) reached the goal for their IndieGoGo campaign, the funds of which are, in part, going toward print runs for a number of upcoming books, including the first Chadhiyana trade!

     So, thank you all who have contributed to the campaign. I look forward to bringing you the first Chadhiyana graphic novel, and many more in the future. As a show of thanks, I put this special illustration together today (at the indirect suggestion of one of my fellow Rosarians). It’s likely one of the only times you’ll see Chadhiyana looking this serene.

     For those who missed out on the campaign (and the exclusive Chadhiyana comic that comes with the trade), oddly enough, the campaign still seems to be open. I’m not sure for how long that will last, but if you’d still like to show your support for Chadhiyana, Rosarium and diversity in publishing (plus help push them closer to those stretch goals), just visit the link below. Scroll down to Chadhiyana (in the $20 perk range), click and put in your payment information. Then wait for the release in January!

     Cheers! And thank you all, so much, again!
