Mixed With Mud

Your ashes were left
in a storage room
out by the pool

on the day of your memorial
no one mentioned your wasted life
seeped in depravity
an ache in their memory for how
things could have been.

Should your remains be scattered
at your local hang-outs
or housed in a slot at a cemetery?
After some discussion
it was decided they
should be mixed with mud and used
as an exterior for a ceremonial

shelter in the hills in the north country
where prayers offered in that holy place
could permeate your troubled soul

and you would finally be blessed
in the heavens above.
