I used to make Death out to be a man.  Poppa Time, ragged beard, bad
sandals, sickle, attitude problem.  But now Death means Female.  And
that's what shook me so.  Death can screw us pretty much any time she
chooses.  Astride, she can bear down on us, hard, and that, I reckon,
I've long known.  But now I had to consider a new possibility.  You
know, screwing her *back*.
