speak to me

speak to me
speak to me
with ashes in your mouth
for i would rather hold your ashes
than the roses of most other folk

let me sit in your silence
if it is silence you need or wish
for i would rather watch the sky grow pewter
then watch a fabulous sunset without you

cast me in your fantasy
if it pleases you
but do not cast me away . . .

--William C. Burns Jr.
my life? . . .
throw in a few flying zombies
and you'd have an episode of Dr. Who.
