My Epitaph-Georgia Park/Private Bad Thoughts

There will be criminals, vagabonds

and generally suspicious looking characters

lurking in the background of my funeral

Should i die tomorrow,

half of them will attend in hiding

paying their respects from behind the bushes

and all of them will refuse to make eye contact

Should i die tomorrow,

you cant tell me i haven’t led

a life that was interesting

Should i die tomorrow,

ill know i had

my share of lovers

and adventures

you can write that

for my epitaph:

“She’ll be mourned by

nobody who would dare to admit it

and she was also very mischievous.”

[Georgia Park is creator of Private Bad Thoughts, curator of Whisper and the Roar a feminist literary collective, and a writer for Sudden Denouement. She is a wonderful poet with an enormous heart. We can’t imagine this journey without her. Please check out more of her wonderful work.]
