Holy Saturday’s Work

(for that which is already but not yet)

Go outside
and kneel

beside still-sleeping beds.

Strip away all
that’s dead;

the leaves,
brown and curled,

and the dry,
empty stems

of last year’s


scallop-edged bricks

that have
stood, leaning,  

all year-long

forgotten gravestones.

Roll the
giant flowerpot aside

and wonder
at the sound of

stone scraping
against stone.
