Mount Jerome Gravedigger

“It’s not the dead ones I’m afraid of

It’s the live ones”

He quips at me as I pass

with my camera and my curiosity

I watch him negotiate the huddled beds

like a Redbreast jumping from twig to twig

dragging behind a shovel and spade

ready to make room

for another customer among their

kindred Victorian faithful
