“ Lining A Coffin ” ~ with who I’d been ~

 

I’ve come and gone,

And now lie down

To line my coffin,

I’ve done and seen

All I’ve had time,

As life dissolved

The meager layers

It had composed,

To thus so shape

Who I had been

For life’s short race…

 

In that brief span

I would so choose

To so perused,

All I could use

The while alive,

And till I reached

That place in time,

To lie me down

And hence so line,

Alas my lonely coffin!

                                                          ode to Edgar Allan Poe

    • Pick your poison, Poe or Lugosi, that’s part of the fun of black humour. Naturally I favour Poe because he was a great poet, and he remains my favourite authors of macabre and or dark literature. Jean-Jacques Fournier
