For What We Left Behind

Some day we shall all find rest
On a sandy ocean floor
As a whale carcass, picked clean
By octopi and other such creatures
Our name // our journey // our story
Absent in
Articles which focus instead on
The life which is sustained
By that which we once were
A spectacle
Wonder to behold
Not for what we were
Or what we are now
But for what we left behind.
