A Death That Grieves No Stranger

A death that grieves no stranger
Is witless as a mouth
That deaf eyes do not fathom
Mute singleness of route
As pines a troubled forest
For signs of seeded quarry
We herald the dumbest signpost
To break the traveler's story

A death that grieves no stranger
Concern that has no pivot
Sails as the ship of ancients
No sextant and no rivet
Clairvoyant the earth is
Of disappearing traces
To cast about the crowd is
To see the missing faces
