The dead burn easily by Patricia Furstenberg

Patricia Furstenberg | May 24th, 2022 | poetry | 1 Comment


Step, step on this land
That was not yours to begin with.
Run, pound the roads that were not of your making.
The dead burn easily.

Laugh at the sun, laugh at life
That was gifted to you.
Cry, yell at what they stole.
The dead burn easily.

Fight your bother, fight your nemesis,
Fight your wife and your child.
Who will remember you, don’t you know that
The dead burn easily.
