Thread: a life metaphor:

  1. #1

    a life metaphor:

    the cemetery and all the stone
    and marble crucifixes
    the angels with eyes
    lifted up to the heavens
    the slabs of marble and granite
    holding bones in eternal hugs
    the names and dates and dried up petals
    the empty vases and incense holders
    the trees for shade
    the ashes in rows
    the roses for tears and never bestowed kisses
    resides in perpetuity
    inside our flesh and bones, in the skulls and marrow
    of all of us but mostly
    in the women who birth us.

    I think this is a great piece, it speaks for all of those who have come before us and all of those still yet to come. It hints that ultimately we will join the rows and become part of this chain.

    If I had one criticism the use of and twice in L1 & L2 throws me somewhat, for me I’d use it in L1 and not L2.

    Otherwise thank you for sharing
