entry arrow11:18 PM | Bury Those Bones Deep

By R. Torres Pandan


Bury those bones
Deep into the bowels
Of the earth.
Let no scrap remain
For dogs. Break
And scatter those bones
Into the hurried grave,
So when the ferryman
Waits for the dark fiend,
Greedy for its coined mouth,
He will slump off in vain,
As this black thing,
Long dead before
Its surreptitious burial,
Is thrown away
Into that unmarked pit.
Now, Lord, we commend
To you this unrepentant soul.
Grant it uneasy rest
Among its restless victims.
