after Paranirvana by Lewis deSoto
I lie in repose
As the arms and legs
Of our modern world’s soldiers
March by, convinced if they don't,
The cogs of progress will freeze in place
I live in repose
As greed’s roots
Take hold in the corners of the sphere
And the curves of our hearts
Spiraling into the composted remains
Of its ultimate reward
I lie in repose as
The moving pictures of my mind
Rubble where walls once stood
Flowers where the discards of existence abided
Outstretched hands where fists once thrusted
And hope it was not just a dream
