Decent Burial

I sink into the earth
and what is there for me:
a bent ferryman
old heroes in Hades
Jesus harrowing hell

I sink past
gogetum gophers and
earthweary worms
there is deep cool
there is liquid heat

I sink right through to
the other side and float
into space that isn't
endless but is--like every-
thing--always ending

I sink still more
into a space beyond
space where there are
no answers and no
