I do not want a plain box, I want a sarcophagus With tigery stripes, and a face on itRound as the moon, to stare up. I want to be looking at them when they comePicking among the dumb minerals, the roots. I see them already-the pale, star-distance faces. Now they are nothing, they are not even babies.
