TOTEM

A memory

A totem

Written

For all the

Lost souls

Of animals

Some of us

Still wear the cross

Some of us

Just bury the dead

And place a stone

Above them

Read eulogies

And bible verses

And wear

Their remaining skins

Scream prophetically

Into the sky

And

Call ourselves

“Poets”

But none of us

Ever get to heaven

In the end
