Eternity

Because Lena's not yet three,
she doesn't know the reason for this place.
'I like this little house. And this little house,'
she says as she loops around them
-the play-size 'houses' of the dead.
Here in Key West, as in New Orleans,
where the land and sea are nearly level,
some are set just above the surface,
and Lena leans on their 'big stone beds.'
