This is another poem that was made for Liz. The prompt here was “mortician.” You can see this picture and more on the Typewriter Poetry Facebook page.

“Mortician”

They think I study
death
because I’m ┬ámorbid.
But really
the analysis
of unmoving bodies
makes one reconsider
the steps they take
in their own life,
the mistakes they make
and their own regrets.
