AFTERLIFE

I have a worthy goal I pine to be a fossil on permanent display in some future museum All it takes is the proper soil in which to reside for years and years of unflinching patience And then a bit of luck when a doctoral student stumbles across my remains and finds the subject for her dissertation Scientist will argue over what it all means and I will live on in death as a smiling toothy enigma
