Not Dead Yet

I enter and take images -
nothing else.
       I don't disturb those who sleep amongst all that surrounds.
Eternal sleep 'neath church clocks chime.

Who are these that live no more; where are the forever dead now?

          ...Elizabeth Rogers; who were you?
Has the 'affectionate rememberance' forgotten, now that time time has moved on?

Those heavy iron gates keep the world at bay -
            but you don't care,
like those who drive past in their cars,
       the yet to be dead -
                                      the soon to be,
              sure to be...

Not Dead yet!
