My Request Come Winter

 

When winter’s chill seizes me

When I’m dead and gone

Please don’t plant me 

Under the lawn

Better to scatter my weary bones 

Upon the wind

Leave no marker to mourn 

No corpse to offend

No marble angels

Or slabs of granite

Just give me some

Peace and quiet damn it

In the bone orchard 

The view is always the same

A calendar of awful anniversaries

A phone book of forgotten names

No when I’m done and gone

Don’t shed a single tear

I’d rather be remembered

As if I was never here
