At My Own Funeral - Poem by Leslie Philibert

Bells. Cold air. Damp earth.
Carrying my own coffin as if

divided and watching myself from outside.
Throw masks into an empty grave.

I have been caught leaving a shop
with a bag of stolen apples.

Surrounded by dropped faces and lost tones.
The air cold. Earth damp. Bells.
