Epitaph

Epitaph

can’t help but pause
when you think of him waving out to someone

Maybe they all do that.
You’ve never seen it, save a few pets that came and went. A howl you’ll never bury.

Seems convenient that you’re always too far away or too far removed.
Maybe you’d feel more inclined,
without that pat on the back they call prayer.

But when your own tank runs low, you bet you’ll be praying too.
