Beneath my feet

I walk the aisles
of England’s cathedrals
and churches
the Abbey
St. Paul’s
St. Martin’s
to consider the people
lying under the stones
beneath my feet
treading carefully
from respect
knowing my own grave
will not be so noticed
or remarked upon
or trod upon
knowing the words
on my stone will erode
weather and fade
as much as those
beneath my feet.
