For Weldon

Dana Taylor's Funeral

See this game?

For Weldon

In this necropolis
I find
Escape from the overwhelming
Sensations of
Life.

Distanced by your still halls,
Surrounded by your musty tombs,
Shielded by your crumbling walls,
I move only to embrace your safe remains:

To remove your tattered jacket,
To touch your brittle spine,
To open your yellowed skin,
To see what your tissues hide,
To ponder what is held inside.

There, your heart is laid bare.
Love and hate,
Joy and dismay,
Courage and fear,
Anticipation, frustration, longing, and
Passions just like mine –
Hoping not to pass silent through time.

I could stay, and
In leaving the lessons of lost days,
Perhaps,
I too might rest here, and
Live forever.


–M.A. Russell
