False Insanity
by Somali Mukherjee

No need to hurry;
No need to hustle;
The waves do carry
Our each sandcastle.

Other times my head is in the sand...

open casket funeral
by Bogdan Dragos

what would be the reason
to have an open casket funeral?

Why should the living
see the dead?

He addressed the questions to no one
in particular
but his dead wife answered from the
picture on the wall
