Thereafter - Poem by chayamsu v r

the corpse, when dead
waked and walked away, nude,
saving the last faces,
and the sweat and spittle
for the kinsmen.

the police took the under-cloths;
spittle and feces,
for the street dogs,
and some sandals
swept the last sweats.
thus that death was
not orphaned.
