Screw Top Lid

chatting about your ashes 
you laugh 
engaged interested 
surprised 
a diamond ring 
necklace 
bracelet 
earings 
turning a diamond 
into a diamond 
ideas flow 
from the blooming obvious 
burying you under a rose bush 
to downright dangerous 
scattered 
out of the window 
whilst motoring up the M1 
you'd really like that

did you know 
there are cheeses 
surrounded in ash 
you shake your head 
in disbelief 
it's ok mum 
we won't eat you 
is it strange this talk 
four sisters different ideas 
the not so unusual 
keep you in a jar 
with a screw top lid 
sit you in the middle 
of the coffee table 
chat to you 
as if you're there 
in a way 
i suppose you will be
