A bare-boned tomb



A bare-boned tomb
surrounded only
by parched grass
Warmed by the shadow
of an iron cross
Silk lilies
tattered, weatherworn
without vase or glass
Obligatory offerings
from distant kin
on an All Saint’s Day
long since past
Forgotten flowers
out of place
on the solemn
slab of white
Artificial reminders of tears unshed
over precious life once led
