Over Their Coffins

Janet Kuypers

I work for
a photo studio,
someone suggested
I should sell photo packages
to old people,
and to tell them
to have their photos taken
before they die.
I told him that’s a
terrible marketing campaign,
and they said
but they can then
have their photo
over their coffin.

Yes, photos taken
to be placed
over their coffins,
smashing idea.
