Seen on Muddy Creek Road


the undertaker birds

with plucked pink wrinkled heads

don’t care where you came from

they care where you made your last trip

where you lay your burden down

education, money, beauty

skin-deep concerns

escape their baleful gaze

when they assess, muster their colleagues,

bend to close study, all that matters

is a modicum of taste.
