After I Finally Die

And once again I’m just
a dandelion tuft of mind rooted in
that greater acreage of mind

When once again
I’m just a chocolate chunk
bedded in that infinite mint ice cream bliss

You will come blazing by
like a comet
spitting celestial fire

And I will exclaim to my fellows

“There goes one with whom for a time
I splashed in the shallows of the body

One with whom I dove deep
into the whirlpools of love

One who by gazing into the reflecting ponds
of her being
saw the finer divots of my own desires!”

And those spirits planted around me
will nod in assent
like eel grass rippling in the tide

As you speed away
like an omen of planetary importance
across some ancient
midnight sky
