is your tomb and here is the spot here
where i may bury you
it is quite warm
for a day in the sun of february.
is your little mink pillow, with the white socks
inside. in case you want them to cover your feet.
i brought you a casserole
and a jar of white jelly from the mantel
i hope that’s enough.
take this ring. it’s only twenty pennies
four nickels, two dimes, one heart
and it has a little string, see?
you can wear it around your neck.
