It is only a matter of time
until the stone lays down with the sheep
and sleeps.
Rested firmly above the holes
where our eyes used to be.

It is only a matter of matter
until epitaph and eulogy diminish to dust
and sleep
becomes the eternal home,
not where our souls used to be.

It is only a matter of fact
that our words will become reductionist, redundant,
and sleepily
the world will forget
where our words used to be.
I was thinking about gravestones, eroding as we do. Those final words to summarise us, even they do not live forever. How long will my legacy live for?

Did you know that if a gravestone is unstable (and could potentially fall on someones foot or something) then the gravestone attendants have to lay them down. As if the stone itself had died. Somehow this seems so so sad.

A very intriguing poem about a rather saddening thought.

If it makes you feel better, when I grow up I'll make a little handwritten book with all you poetry and I'll force my children to pass it on to their children.
