Will the rooster’s ever wake you up again?
When your lover brings you coffee in the morning
will you be dreaming - forever?
You wrote a poem
way back in junior high school
called “How to plan your very own
open casket funeral”.
How to dress the dead.
How to crack an impossible smile.
When there’s nothing left to smile about
and all that’s left now
are pockets full of moths.
Mismatched argyle socks.
Your pant legs rolled up
and your fingers crossed.
That Silver Jews T-shirt
you rarely took off.
Just the way you planned it.
