A name a date met in dying

carved in stone

lasting far longer

than the body beneath.

The flourishes

upon the tombstone

taking away

from the reality

of the worms

and a corpse

rotting in the dirt.

But the grave marker

memory entrances

in illusion and in truth.

The silence of the cemetery

a forever quiet

and of Earth.
