INVITATION TO THE AFTERLIFE


once you were

tormented in 3D


now you’re called

saved from everything


eyes washed clean

as the sky after rain


they say there’s

love in the afterlife


beautiful garments

a blue glazed heaven


your tears in a jar

pickled and precious


a long long table

with seats for everyone


the rings of saturn

are jasper and onyx


the wings of mercury

grow from your shoulders


the Pleiades sit

beside you and chatter


your name’s on the poster

you are the guest here


you may even be

the bride at the wedding
