Deadbeat

To live again, I
will not come after dying for
you. Resurrection?

I ask the dust, when
did you slip from the moon
to kiss immortal?

Don't leave a cut
on the sandstone to mark
the anniversary.

    The only thing immortal is dust, and the memory lost in the wind. Thoughtful and meditative work, it lingers in the mind. Well chosen for poem of the day.
