I Will Outlive Them

when i say “i will outlive them”

i mean

my body

long lying in a blanket of earth

enjoining the soil

the fabric

of a new shelter

and the flowers

people would come from miles around

to smell and sit amongst the flowers 

a garden for all the Others

and i, us, We

the perpetual next Creation
