Kids at a Funeral Cemetery

Will Grofic

Here lies the kids
they are at funerals
asking where their grandma is
and why you all talk
like she isn’t coming.

Here lies the kids
who've been told to draw or sit still
bribed with éclairs or cookie dough
ice cream afterwards.

Here lies the kids told on the fly
that they won't see her again,
it is life and they know this.

Here lies a kid that figures it out
on the drive home. This is life

they know this. Here lies the kid.
