Dying is the easy part.

It’s the walking out of that depleted room; it’s the sliding sterile doors clicking behind you; it’s the starting of the car and the checking of the rearview mirror (for what? a ghost? a specter of hope? an orderly running through parking lot puddles yelling, “Stop, stop! There’s been a mistake”?)
