Summer peaked early Beginning of April, it had sprung, Too warm for comfort or sweat. The flower arrangements came And after sometime, overflowed, The priest spoke about the celebration of life. No cry, no sobs, no one wept, They waited for a call from the undertaker, The pit takes long in the seething heat, he’d said. The choir boys look out of windows. Mourners chide ceiling fans for being slow, Bouquets would take a while before dropping dead. Everyone imagined with shudder, The day they would lie, with poignance Hands crossed in front. Out of the icebox, laid in bed of flowers Mom saw all this, no longer cool, her soul Impatient -- is it done? The resting place.
