Lot’s Wife

I often run into old friends~long ago teachers, classmates, girlfriends of yore

each of whose voices now reappears only in a chilling echo

at times I have tried to relive our old relationships

only to find that yesterday’s living breathing rapport

has been of late supplanted by its most dreadful Zombie counterpart

with neither free will nor joy, a stranger to Misericordia

standing still and cold outside its empty tomb

chanting Tempus fugit Memento Mori
