AFTER THE FUNERAL

after-the-funeral
 
 
The bones under
the sod
shift and sway,
a lurid
pandiculation.
We only wanted
to show due
reverence. We
only wanted
to do what

when faced with
the Final Black:
say something
like a prayer,
honor what’s gone,
and ask the
devil to give us
an eternal pass, we
who stayed behind.
