Lady of the Dead
Queen of the underworld
keeper of their bones
ancient festivals
celebrate the dead
in your name

You were born
and then sacrificed
as an infant
a human offering
we present to you
a flayed body
revealing the void beneath
with mouth agape
to swallow the stars
at night.


In the funeral of my dreams all of my mortal enemies are invited. Once they arrive they take a seat. The pews creak. Suddenly the doors are locked from the outside. My corpse emerges from the casket, on strings. Whitney Houston’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)” plays through the speakers. My corpse, chasing my enemies as they try to escape the room.
