Bio







Your tombstone stands among the rest,
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care;
it is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist;
you died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood and bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew,
that someday I would find this spot
and come to visit you.
