After a Funeral

 

Grieve what your voice says

to grieve; a cold language

speaks until you are humbled

 

Beneath its wetness

you might live

another hundred years



After I Die

 

No need to bury me

after I die; just lay me

in the weeds, face up

so I can look at the stars

 

as I try to remember

what the hell I did to get

to such a place so far

from home
