Cemetery Spiral Waltz

Old names break into pieces
Somewhere along the timeline

Like handmade pottery
Thrown at the ground

Or at the walls, or at the window
Or onto the ceiling, caught in the skylight

Thrown up
Like so many things

Before time
Before our names

Were ever spoken
Were ever recalled

By some stranger
Walking through the cemetery alone

Speaking the names of ghosts
Who also walk circles here.
