ANTIGONE. "We must bury them," he said.
He said we must.
Well, he didn't say it, no.
He did not say those words,
he indicated it with very simple gestures that this was expected.
THIS. WAS. DEVOTION.
And so we did.
We buried father’s eyes into a scattering of earth,
And as we did he made me PROMISE:
to forever defend the souls of my broken family.
There were few words—though much language was expressed on either side, but words, no.
ALL THINGS MUST REST.
His final words to me.
