Poetry Friday: The Graveyard by Caitlyn Siehl

In the graveyard of our hands,
we are bringing each other back to life.
In the graveyard of our hands, we are digging up the funeral and
burying it again, fresh and unmourned.
Take me to the mausoleum where
we first learned how to tiptoe over
ghosts and then make it sing.
Make the place talk like a fable.
Teach me how to be brave.
Teach me where to put the time that doesn’t heal so that it can never find me again...
