cemetaries dressed in their fall finest

cemetaries dressed in
their fall finest —
orange tafetta red bows
draped in yellow satin
— headstones primp while
their stone angels admire
and smooth the dressings
with a soft ghost hand.

the dance begins
and for a season
cemetaries
feel the flutter of
a young girl’s anticipation
and take a break from
supine rest.
