Misconstrued the clues

Talking heads
in the cemetery
stop making sense
Take an age to delineate and the conversation
Dies, lies under marble,
Skeletons-in-the-cupboardburied deep down,

The shadowing of atavistic sunsets shroud the
Heroically depicted in a glass of the past,

The funereal days of page-turning and ancient
Quotes out of context and
The steeple chases
away doubts of the weary and the plaque and
the signs point to surety when nobody
has the right, when it's now self-evident
they all
