City for the Dead

carrying a body,

trying to bury the dead,

decomposition set in,

festering flies,

smother the air,

rain drenches the wooden

box, a smell leaks and suffocates

these thoughts, no time to mourn,

forgetting life, no honor in decay,

the place of burial so far away,

the sun relentless, where is the city

for the dead?
