CEMETERY LINES

Even the Greeks
Through wars and permutations
Of culture
Found time to sleep.

A word or slang
That captures the fainting breath
In proper
Cadence must speak.

But speak for whom?
The recording angel's deft
Accounting
Of a man's life?

My epitaph
Should read: It was time misspent
In pleasure
Of such questions.
