YIELD – PAUL ROBERT MULLEN

 

i return             as most do                   to die

you see            i am weary of travel

a wheel i had to break

before

this carcass disintegrated

into unfamiliar dust

death must come for me

where my name is known                   where the ground

will accept my bones
