last street

 

what street

will be the last one

my casket rolls through

 

will it be long

and winding

or short—

a quick bump

here and there

 

who will drive my hearse

will they know my name

 

maybe it will be Alameda

or Montana

or a street that is dirt at this moment

like the home i’m headed to

 

will the sun be out

or clouds

 

will someone on the street

stop and point

stop and think

i wonder who’s in there

i wonder if they loved life

and lived it

 

i wonder too

[this poem was included as part of the art piece Inscription by Shinpei Takeda]
