Were Not

Throw black bones,

With eyes white,

Onto your red square.

Read the signs –

Match your possible futures

To your more probable pasts.

Ask your silk wrapped cards

To speak of your now

Winding on to your when.

Move.

Be.

You make your own future,

No matter what is suggested

In the entrails of birds,

Or the roll of dice,

Or the lay of a few cards.

You were not

What you will be.

We’ll Keep Your Garden Well

A wind raced through your house

And shuddered along the walls

It blew out your candles

And left horror in the halls

 

It’s colder now on your front porch

And there’s dust upon your floor

The lights are out because you’re gone

And I know you’ll return no more

 

We all came to visit once

And left a note upon the glass

You know we’ll keep your garden well

As the seasons slowly pass

 

It’s so sad that you left

Because we never said goodbye

You know we’ll keep your garden well

It’s so sad you had to die.
