Augury

I am sated
For I have been relieved
Of the duty
That was never bestowed
Upon me.

Did it ever occur to you?
The final verse
Had long been died down into
The Oblivion?
Have you ever noticed
How the chapel bells
Stopped tolling
After the death of the visionary?

Come along the aisle
Approach the bier
Standing at the end of the line
Look around and see
None is watching your shaking hand
Unliding the casket.

There you will see
Through the halo of
Your draining tears
The long forgotten face of mine
With my eyes still open.
