Grave Reflections

Poem by Melissa Watkins Starr
Melissa Watkins Starr, a former news reporter, works as a writer/editor from her
home in Portsmouth, Virginia.


Illustration by Andrés Canan


It’s the smallness, they say,
in the depths of the clay
in a coffin that’s most terrifying
to a corpse not quite dead
when he comes to his head
and senses his air rarifying.
