Cairns caskets crypts caves
Always the need to seize to save
When the place of return is the
place of rebirth… then
Why encumber release from the earth?
Morph, molt, melt, mix
A treatise on metamorphosis
Wizard’s brew of flora and fauna
Hematite, copper, fire, and slaughter
A gift to appease the gods and the spirits
Bones stones ageing’s wrath
A tribute to being, an ash epitaph
Dust is to dust as wood
is to rock
As matter to matter to master
Lichen moss pods bark
A few short hours to leave their mark
Turning and turning and
turning and turning
