Trim, bodies

you’d rather cling to the dead
than bury them instead
and it’s because you like the company.

clearly anything will do for you
provided it takes up     space

but bodies that smell of completed cycles
have become one with your plain,
now you can’t tell the difference.

And some bodies are best left unexhumed
as their presence is worse than the first

remember they’ll vex more than when they rotted
and you’ll yearn for that pre-shovel pain.

Maybe some things shouldn’t be shared.
