- How To Bury The Living
Tuesday, December 21, 2010
You will know of this.
It will furrow your brow and twist your sheets
deep into still, still nights. You may need to mumble
assurances to feel that you exist
or that you ever existed.
You may feel inclined to resort to counting
worry beads with affirmations;
to eat too much cake;
to discover the maelstrom of stupor.
You will discover how the mourner
must also be undertaker - of how memories are measured
up for suit and coffin alike -
of how you will die too. A whole self.
The nervous system that grew beneath
the countless delicacies of touch; the heart that sniffed
the wind timidly at first, that same heart
which became a citadel of light
that archived the lore and legend of an era,
the language of two.
Soon enough, oblivion will gnaw the last empty
socket, and decay will have its way with history.
Daisies will push through the wretchedness.
Take care, keep safe, and stay beautiful,
With love and peace,
