I don’t very much like cemeteries
we speak of it so blithely
buried or cremated?
both surely dead
a stone, granite, masonry
a statue, monument, a house
a box encasing
so those alive might see
a place you surely will not be
shall I reveal my gallows humor ? because I am alive I can not really offend those that are dead, I once saw a balloon that had drifted onto a tomb, it said “get well soon”
goin’ obvious with tunes tonight… well, not the album version at least….
so call me old, call me an old man, but I still know good tunes, and I certainly listen to heavier stuff (on average) than you 🙂 like Carcass, Cathedral, Napalm Death, Entombed, maybe one day I will post all my top insane metal tunes since I have been listening to crazy stuff going back 30 years… I know ya’all don’t get it.. but I am not just a valley, or a mountain, or a tempest, or a gentle breeze, I’m me… all of it.
and I had to post the date I wrote that poem. Why? the wool… I will never pull the wool, because I will be honest with you at all times, sure, it is easy to doubt… but how many poetry blogs do you see with the dates attached as mine… of course it could be OCD… or just honesty, that is not up to me, it is to you – reading this, and I trust you, with that.
