Cover the mirrors

For RBG, may her memory be a blessing

Cover the mirrors
Ring the bell
Turn over the chairs
Leave the broom 
in the closet
Place the lid of the coffin
outside the door

Take off your jewelry
Tear your lapel
Paint yourselves ochre
Lock your razor away
Give the dead a new name 
Cover them in leaves and 
Feed the body to the birds

Pull down the moon
Still the winds
Silence the tides

Ask forgiveness 
of the dead
