Tiny Lil Worms

April 22, 2021


Bury me deeper
in words.
Let those tiny lil worms
eat me all up.
Don’t mark me 
with a stone.
Don’t do any such thing.
Don’t bring me flowers,
bring me seeds,
and I’ll do the rest.
Publish my poetry.
But only one copy.
And give it to a library,
or maybe an orphanage.
Or keep it.
And bury it
deeper in words.
Let those tiny lil worms
eat it all up,
maybe in your backyard,
or the potted plant down the hall.

But don’t mark me with stone.
And don’t bring me flowers,
I’ll take care of that.
Bury me deeper in words,
and those tiny lil worms
will eat me all up.
