eulogy to a friend

stop the bells 
silence the choir 
forget flying the flags at half-mast 
lay down the guns 
lest they prove 
to few to salute you 
as for the flowers 
there aren't enough hours 
that could buy enough of them for you 
i stand in your wake 
behind the parade 
that leaves us quiet today 
and wait for the sun 
to no longer belong 
i don't care for it now anyway
