The Graveyard

crashed—

in waving fields of grass

and little mounds of dust

a chunk of cosmic stone—Heaven’s gift

 

made small beside the marble wall

the wall well cut, engraved

a monument:

ADAM & RACHEL

1912-1912

to death.

and round the restless wind

plays dirges unaccompanied

deep into the night

and beetles creep and spiders

weave while dust returns to dust
