the world is protesting;
screaming and shouting and
shaking and heaving, pouring
it's molten red heart out

and i do not want to be laid
to rest with a great grey slab
weighing me down, and i will
not be burned again, so i think

i'd like to sleep in nature's
bed, yeah he can take me, remove
my layers one by one and powder
my bones with lichen

(the world doesn't like waiting for anyone)

Wonderful poem. "powder my bones with lichen" is such a strong and evocative way to bring it to an ending.
