Funeral Instructions

In our life, death is no song.
Do you hear it?
In the graveyard,
not a single person is
‘Living’ and ‘death’,
Paired up,
Sounds clunky.

Like two estranged neighbors
living side by side
Exchanging nothing more than an occasional casual wave

The two perform a dance that is
Seen only by the random neighbor.
And then…
someone draws the curtain,

What is the silent gesture for,

I think it’s a clap,
Two of them,
Short and sweet,
Like a life
