Signs of End Times

by messages in the public space.  

Sometimes they entertain…sometimes they seek to entice.

Scouting the closing scenes in this small town cemetery–

it was clear that, in death, the road still beckoned.

An epitaph is like

an eternal tweet.

And if I’m going to be grounded,

I’d pick a plot that’s bare bones.
