At Rest. A Poem about Death by Adreyo Sen

At Rest

Her hand was like a bird,

white and pale,

that would never fly again.

It had died.

It lay at rest.

So did most of her.

She was curiously still,

in the repose

of the dead.

Her tongue flew and flew,

as if it would fly

all the way

to Siberia.

Which was where her eyes

must have just

returned from.

They were frozen.
