Grave Concern


Walking through

the park-like place


ornamental stones,

one finds a hole

a foot or so deep

and knows

the wooden lid

of a coffin fell!

    Watch your step, as more and more coffins are biodegradable! You slyly note that cemeteries are in a way parks with pretty stones, especially when the departed mean little to you. But don't get too complacent! maybe one of them will grab you by the ankle.
