Insurance

men are gone, settled down as dust
on wayside trees, mostly leaves that
will fall to disappear to private dust.
this business of turning dust goes on
all months, all years and at all times

after April, cruelty continues in May.
So we buy insurance against extreme
forms of cruelty to bodies in their rot
and keep them in deep freezers like
out of season potatoes in cold rooms
for profit taking after cruelty passes.
