Equal Fates II

With great anxiety I wrote
an essay about mass deaths

Remembering old gravestones
I’d seen in Sarajevo
also in Ijebu-Ode

clustered beside sidewalks
but emptied of vistors

As if in the years
between those burials
& my travels

an unquestioned doctrine
about human immortality
had gained young followers
