In Memoriam

There is no poetry


so actually
we didn’t drown him

just threw his ashy remains
out over the all absorbing sea

not knowing what else to do
except for singing a little song

which we couldn’t do properly
which we couldn’t do
which we couldn’t

not even a song
he would like

just a picture of the scene

for the singing was no good
at all
