Plot

by B.C. Leale

(in Hills Cemetery)

Seen it. The plot
& like it. In all
particulars.
Rough grass
soon to be mown.
The handful of ants clambering
up the harsh green stalks
then down.
£437. A snip. I’ll take it
with its unseen
complimentary worms.
The only earth I’ll ever own
around me wrapped tight.
