PRETTY GRAVES
(11/8/14)


I have
buried
them

I have
buried
them
all

all
of those
worldly attachments
that were sinking
my soul

the deadly
sins
of self

family
friends
relationships

society's
benchmarks
for success

the multitude
of misconstrued
conceptions
concerning life
spirit
and reality

I lay
dead flowers
at their
markers

they were
worth
no more
than that

I live
for the first
time

today
