An Argument for Cremation

Primavera (2)

By Lynne Thompson

Thirsty grass

Issue for a wife:
(on top.  ..finally)what to wear to impress the ghosts

Headstone covered in bird shit
Lies on the headstone

One bent daffodil
One brown rose

Family neglects to come (again)
Not so the tax collector,

You’ll need to STOP
for a map if the unholy Daughters
of the Cross misremember where

Notice: no balm

Ash in the distance
Crap in a crypt
