don’t forget to get my cigars

Cemetery in Malvern by Doug Shaver

where have you led me
I don’t see colours
green merges into browns
grays grow out of red

trees blur over my portrait
ghostly though I am.
a sideways mirror-
I like the macabre me

exhaust fumes
have marked headstones
as I am new corpse
mine is fairly clear

yet all this serenity
bores me to death
(oh I am already dead!)
come midnight, I come alive

hunting for new spirits
to feed on their souls
here in this cemetery
that’s fairly easy

next time you visit me
don’t get me flowers,
save too your precious tears
as your papa will die soon

“well, don’t forget to get my cigars
and my new hat
and all those lawbooks
which helped me fleece people”
