Funeral of a Red Nosed Artist

 

Your cardboard coffin:
sat in a municipal
crematorium

“Put me in a box
and chuck me on the fire”.

That was your request.

 

The bearers wore black.
Your friends dressed as rainbows
on your red nose day

Painting your cocoon:

weaving our connecting thread,
to travel with you

You fed fruit to bears
Lip to lip with grey giants
you kissed the deep wild
