MARIGOLDS

When I die, let it be in the field
This land’s been good to me
Let the next crop come through me

Let my flesh feed first the animals
Give the beasts their fill to start
Let the victor take my heart

With what remains, let the soil be fortified
Let my last cell decompose
To spring forth marigolds
