funerals cannot bury

burn it over a candle©papa osmubal

funerals cannot bury
debby sou

write it down on a piece of paper
toss it into a garbage can
drown it under the sea
throw it out of the window
burn it to ashes over a candle

it

give it a luxurious funeral

so that the world knows
is sure
it is dead

but you can’t bury an it

or you can
but it grows again

you know
it will always pop up
in haunted dreams
over a telltale mirror
in a sky covered with monstrous faces

its ghost cries out loud
hits hard with its fists on the heart
wakes you up in your self-willed trance
then you know at last
such a power
cannot be buried
subdued
denied
