Rest

Give me permission through your successors
To dig you your new bed.
To give you a place to sleep
When your time on this plane
Has finished its final render.

Let me chroma key the color of your ivory cocoon
With shades of brown and black.
To mask your wooden shield
With a shield of sepia mud and clay.
Go to sleep.

Allow me the privilege to
Gaussian blur your cooling quilt of soil
With my stained iron spade,
To smooth the dirt
And welcome you to your new home.
