(Death’s Dictionary) by Kevin Young

(Death’s Dictionary)

A shack made of ribs.
A house made of out.

A car made of rust.
A smile made of doubt.

A house made of fire.
A magician’s gesture.

Of cards. Of the Lord.
As preacher, pats his brow.

A joint made of juke.
A twist. A night away. 

A wood made of green.
Of blood.

The kerchief now a bandage.
A place in the sun.

A house made of railroad.
A shack of shotgun.
