old gray body
bound for no grave

for no grave
has issued us visas

and i am a law-
abiding citizen

which is to say i suppose
the law is my abode

so this carcass of mine
has standing

and grows more
and more abstract

taxed and insured
vaccinated and boosted

two-factor authenticated

but is it bound for glory
i could use a ride
