We live near a graveyard
where children play
among willows and tombstones
and the ghosts don’t seem to mind.

Our neighborhood is a democracy of sorts.
The sun shines on the living and the dead

This place suits me.
So does that cemetery up the street.
It’s where I will end up someday
but there’s never any pressure.
