Tombstone

Tombstone

A Poem by Gabrielle Lyn

As I lie next to tombstones
I stare at the cloudless sky
And how the thin branches on the trees
Look like veins against the blue
I could get used to this view

A few flies land on me
As if I am nothing but a tombstone
Until I slowly begin to move my bones
And they are surprised to see

I am alive and breathing
