Hereafter

Leslie E. Hoffman

I’m meeting him in Vasona Park
my friend shrieked
--isn’t life wonderful!

My musings temporarily interrupted
of the plot in Madronia Cemetery

I’d inherited by default

where “notable individuals” are interred
such as Thomas Kinkade
and the second wife
of the Abolitionist John Brown

and my sister

our plots under a gnarly oak
where over half a century ago
we stifled giggles while dancing
on the ground above
where we had no idea
we’d be spending eternity

side by side

non-notably.

I´m sure I´ll be a noisy love-maker
she said, while posing for a selfie
--you know, like when you’re at a funeral
and can’t stop giggling.
