GRAVEDIGGER


Gravedigger, do not dig
inmost graves to die light;
Set aside a rift for the glint
of the sun;
What will happen to you?
A wee glint that will pass
is enough

Inmost graves are perilous,
the imperforate crepuscule
and the gnats in, munching
my body to agonize

Gravedigger, do not dig
inmost graves to die light,
I need air around me
rippling, radiating like
a mollifying gush, the glares
shining upon me shall let me
sleep for long with no gasping
