Elegy for Me
Isabelle5

Do not plant me in a box,
 1
six feet below the grass I love,
 2
just find a meadow,
 3
lay me gently down.
 4
 
 
Let coyotes and Ravens come to feed,
 5
fly larvae fix their teeth
 6
upon what flesh remains
 7
 
 
and when my bones are clean,
 8
let flowers push their way
 9
through skull and sockets,
 10
fertile monument to
 11
a life that was.
 12
 
 
I will be far away,
 13
singing God a love song
 14
with a million newborn stars,
 15
 
 
as I wait to live and live again.
