Grave Digger

We should dig our graves. Then
we might recognize
more often the solidness of earth,
the simultaneous fragility
and resilience of a heartbeat, the fearless
surrender to an eternal embrace,
and the shamelessly indiscriminate fall of dirt
across cheek and hip- a finality
swathed not in resistance, but in rest.
