~after blessing~

~blessed be the grave~
~the afterlife~
~we cannot forget~
~that which we do not forgive~
~wrongs cannot be undone~
~victims & survivors understand~
~life goes on~
~witnesses & confessors~
~press hands against that final door~
~raise their heads & move on~

~after blessing~

~we eulogize through~
~a selective & most times~
~unintentional process~
~referred to as memory~

~wrongs are not righted~
~they are rather~
~come undone~
~usually not so much~
~as a rite of forgiveness~
~rather the spirit relaxing~
~from what can no longer~
~do it harm~
~that it might in fact~
~cause damage to itself~
~in a senseless act~
~of fear & regret~
~for what is forever~
~& ever passed~

~the dead are thus~
~excused from the table of life~
