Black-Eyed Susans

shattered mirrors - broken       looking glass freeze time and       lives with us and i the grave digger      choose to remember those      lost to us red rose on a black box      a handful of dirt thrown      mindlessly and i the grave digger      see those black-eyed susans      extending innocent innards, the       asexual things that      they have been and i the grave digger     shield from burning sun that     prods deeper --BLINK--! with the light off now      go deeper deeper six      feet under and i the grave digger      stop, listen, take views from      my attic Black-eyeds' cries of the de-      -ceased howling in the night      deafening!    [SILENCE] and i the grave digger      choose to remember              [but]      to forget

Additional Notes:
Lack of punctuation intentional. comma for pause effect. exclammation for drama. what story do you see/read here? do you see anything beyond the grave digger? what is the grave digger doing? or is it all merely grim?
