DIRGE FOR A SACROPHAGUS

Enclosed in the gloaming of nothingness
Mortal remnants are snuffed out
Though memory, inveterate recollector 
Continues incessantly throughout.

Within the darkness of emptiness
Mnemonics, dissever and contract
Yet, continuity, despite obstructions
Doesn't from persistence detract

This then, is the sacrophagus
Illumined by the pellucid moon
Obscured as depredation in light
It elides,only to re emerge soon

The human frame it entombs lies inert
Leaving behind associations which subvert.
