daily routine…

multi-colored hearses
transport
bodies
mummified
in corporate mortuaries
along
well-worn paths
to fool’s gold
moving
the breathing corpses
from one
dimly lit
platform
to
another
while
tearless mourners
gather
along
the funeral’s
procession route
a route
to
unremarkable
graves
in the suburbs
