April 10th

“420 Cemetery Road”

Encircled by the chintzy curtains,
I watch.
They call to me as they ride by.
A siren song of the dead,
calling out to the living ,
who must listen
whether they want to or not.

Through the hearse window I see
the coffin lid raise
just enough to show the
leery grin of the departed.

The words infest my mind,
“One day you will take this ride.
One day you’ll be one of us.”
