    Waiting to be Discovered - my second best poem to date

    Waiting to be Discovered


    A drunk girl squats
    On my overgrown grave
    Unaware
    Of my life longer despair
    Her lip service
    Gives me hope
    And she even lets
    A ripper fart go
    Into the air
    All power and pride
    As she considers
    The beauty of the moon
    My cold white bones
    Rattle in expectation
    Of a slow golden shower
    Arriving maybe
    In a few more cold winters
    As she wipes
    She notices something
    On my headstone
    Something I wrote
    “WAITING TO BE DISCOVERED”
    And she thinks
    That was pretty cool
    For a dead
    Unknown
    Unloved
    Old guy

    Rather on the macabre and self deprecating side of things, but I like the concept of being dead yet still holding out hope, hope that some young woman will come and piss/fart on your grave.  Clever and amusing.
