Do the dead remember?

The mark does not vanish
when the blood halts
and coagulates
when bones emerge
the to meet air, crisp
in golden morning

It wafts in aether,
to all for who
wander past
where the sinister
once dwelt

Does the earth forget?
it does not,
it does not
Do the dead remember?
they do,
oh yes, oh yes
they do.
