Ditch The Dirge

what if no carrot
ever died
what would bunnies
live on ?

what if no yams
ever met The Grim
Vegetable Reaper
where would
Thanksgiving be?

what if…
I mean, doesn’t it ever
occur to you
that you are here
because great granny
finally kicked the bucket?
[That rhyme’s too easy:
uh, she died in Nantuckett]

starstuff is what we are
carbon molecules
sempiternally rearranged
earth’s weight has never changed
…least not since
the moon took a powder

let me be
buried at sea
to feed scallops and clams
and return as clam chowder!


[In truth, I would like to be fed to sharks…even before the body is cold. Honest.]
