Grave Waiting

 Grave Waiting

poem by e.e.cane

Jan. 4, 2021


came across centuries 

time enough spells 

death 

every action swift flutterings 

memory flash

poet’s witness 

just read the ashes 

shadows over humanity

creep, and i stumble

weep at the poverty of

wonder

children huddle against heaven’s

siege 

the faithful brand upon them 

sorrows to release into

the silence,

the pitying night 

i'll admit the forgiven,  

their grave 

waiting
