Today's poem is by Andrew Michael Roberts

when we all up and vanish at last

may our abandoned chickens
inherit the city,

and the hedges rise up,
and the money sigh,

and our scents
lift away from things

slowly like souls ,—

souls the seagulls disrupt
in their mad rejoicing

as b elow them the bears
begin to unearth

all we loved and buried
o those rare and opulent years.
