•thank you mulch ~or~ i’ll take groot•

•thank you mulch ~or~ i’ll take groot•
when the end comes
it’s no coffin taking up real estate for me
and i’ll forgo a funeral pyre
stinking up the ecology;
i’ll go for a third alternative
which I just heard about: i’ll be
freeze-dried, converted to mulch,
and planted with a tree –
oh okay, in a field of birch,
if you prefer:
it’s all the same to me
