To Be

The King’s coffin
            mantles the undying being’s mouth
            like innocence taken by whispering raindrops
            donated along the wall of cancer

No notion of cause or well-being
            just there; out of politeness, we share
                            folding chairs to count the numbers,
                            only to brag the statistics in hell

Footprints of one to carry
            when left-to-have footprints
                        disappeared in the murky mud of
                                    “To be.”
