After Life

After Life
What if when we die
our hearts unroll
like scrolls
with detailed lists of everyone
and everything
we ever loved?


What if our minds
start spinning like records
blaring the symphonies
of our deepest thoughts
and ideas?


What if our bodies
stretch into miles of film
projecting onto a blank screen
each ecstatic
and painful moment
the flesh felt?


What if our souls
bloom into bouquets
releasing each fragrant encounter
with wonder
and truth?
