#2,494 Another death outside

Mike Bell/ August 11, 2022/ www.mikebellpoems.com/ 0 comments

Another death outside my
family & I’m mourning my
loss of other things – other
comforts & breaths – We’ll
never have rooms enough
for Heaven’s queue – place
her coffin there – sealed in
by brass screws [there is a
tool for every fitting] – Say
a prayer to our missing – a
nod to God’s absence – we
are not heard in His house
of awaiting-to-be-burieds
[weeping relatives here to
greet that body-filled box]
