Burying More Fools

Exhibit A

Miles of mysteries
Instincts, lore, an inch of ash …
How little I know 

Pressed like a rare moth
Between grass and atmosphere
Kinship and exile


Exhibit B 

Burn your days’ beeswax
Appointing a handsome shroud
So we won’t forget 

Brushed gold patina
Hardy nylon construction
Putrid pink stuffing

Well feted, well fed
Ask next year’s grass for your chit
Huzzah, king of worms!


Exhibit C

Still burying fools
I said it – antiquity
History’s shelves groan

The End
