On my father’s side


I am part fish.


When I am dead,


return me to water.


 


That part of me


which is raven, on


my mother’s side,


will submit.


 


Do not waste time.


Do not bury me,


or feed me to maggots.


Return me to water,


 


I’ve shown you where.


The flow is steady


at this Point.


Don’t reduce me to ash.


 


Petrify me.


Bed me in the fresh lake


whose virtue is


to harden heart to stone.


 


The sediment


will own me, preserve me


from foragers,


minerals will fill me,


 


form stone-crystal


casts of every sealed cell,


death-bound inside me.


Return me to water


 


and no church please,


this is my wish.


From my father’s side


I am part fish.
