“Names of the Dead”, from Left Handed Notebooks

Lest we forget

Marble tablets inscribed

Names of the dead

Or lost or ambiguous

It’s all a messy business

This people inventory

So many parts awry

A cobbled affair

Grotesque prancing

In ugly rhythms

Don’t call on me

To beat the tambourine

I’ve got no memory of time.
