    Underneath the sleeping stones
    The dead lay themselves to rest
    Given back their worldly debts
    Only six feet below the rest

    I sometimes wish I could trade a place
    With the bones under my face
    No longer to suffer my breathing
    Or need my heart a beating

    The dead don’t cast shadows
    They don’t need to drink
    Sometimes the lines waver
    Just a little on the brink
