He comes in a message: 300 characters on the screen or in a phone call which asks you to sit down. Why should I sit down?
Death steals the memories you haven’t created yet. The ones you were looking forward to remembering. Death let’s you know you need to call a loved one, listen to their story again, get it straight.
It leaves you breathless, and panting, and standing and sitting, and the rest of your life is a little bit less now.
Death is a quick cutpurse.
