Yon widow

Who are the children yon widow calls?

For surely it cannot be

the child the widow calls is me?

on this the hallows eve

the Saints afraid to come from their darkened graves

today

the dead dance

their cemetery open for an hour or so

they stretch their legs

(but not too hard, decaying tendons snap)

they slowly after stretching their legs

begin to dance.

the day of the dead.

Sadly most have not yet died

living

they are dead

walking around in corpses that drink coffee

and smile at you as they wave you

into a line of traffic

then speed off into the setting sun

another day

dead lived

who does yon widow call?

It is not me

nor the dead who rise on the hallows eve

who does yon widow call?
