The Poetry of Death

In digging for the stories

Which circulate

Amongst the dirt and stones

 

Explore the possibility

That after death

Words dry up like bones

 

Poetry is found

Within the decaying flesh

Maggots feed upon

 

A beautiful corpse

May write a sonnet

To the glories of the sun
