Ayaz Daryl Nielsen- Three Poems

floral offerings
pallbearers at their places
one eye, still open

six feet under
in my final resting place
worms come a’knocking

beside a burrow
on a wooded bluff
beside the Mississippi
singing hymns of well-being
for that which lives therein
perhaps even a goddess,
yes, the goddess of 
some small creatures
