After reading —Bring our casket home— by S. Vershima Agema


We offer fore note

in the homecoming of our casket.

father voice me— thus;

mites waves are myth—

in the cadence of thoughts...

we journeyed to after words,

life blessed the inky winds,

in the absence of lines & stanzas.

in this poem—

wrinkled the star that

twinkled away fluctuational destination

to the grave of uncertain realms.
