As long as
the people around me turning up
In cold corpses
tucked in white shroud I step up
A ladder more
And stalagmite of my soul chiseled up–
But the exceptions
Erected on bier mother’s decked in marigolds
Father’s big toe peeping out
brother’s lower jaw elevated one by one
They all went
I saw and ran up covered
Bunch of steps in one leap leaving beneath the earthlings.
People of walking world/mocks me/mad mattoid one
but I am alive in my senses among dead ones.
