Lisa Prescottová - Dividing the Dead - v originále

21. června 2007 v 22:48 | Lisa Prescottová |  Sonety
We have a road in our town that divides
the dead. We sort the bodies and the souls
by faith, and keep them on their proper sides,
with proper stones above their proper holes.
For, evidently, it would be a sin
for ghosts of different gods to occupy
one graveyard, although I cannot begin
to think an iron fence stabbing the sky
could keep them separated, if they chose
to mingle, and perhaps discuss the state
of life or afterlife, or juxtapose
one faith upon the other, or debate
the pros and cons and creeds of different cults
that, in the end, all have the same results.
