Motor crescendo-dimuendo-repeat—
lawnmowering this way, then away
in the Old Burying Ground.
Drivers wheel among the long dead
and the empty graves
no resurrection there, but a change,
for whatever remained after decades underground,
to the new, stylish Lexington Cemetery.
Keep those together who belong together.
Perhaps it matters.
All the style now above ground in the sharp cut wheels
The elbow-guided curves taut and fast
Through the living grass.
