dead old lady

Old lady dead

 

The old woman had died had been

a friend of my wife long ago.

I had only seen her once when she

aid in Portuguese “he looks a bit old for you.”

I do understand the language but often

Pretend I don`t understand, more comfortable that way

Save me from talking about useless things.

She had elected to be cremated it was cheaper

that way as she never liked spending money.

It took her a long time dying about a year her daughter

was irked she inherited the flat.

She, the daughter has moved into the flat

and has a great idea about the kitchen and

new, modern furniture.

Yet her death had upset me, in the night

I thought about worms and other insects,

cremation was a good thing for those who

didn`t want to share their rotting flesh

with anyone.
