My Birth

Regina Puckett

In ten thousand years

No one will know my name

It doesn’t matter how many tears

Or how much claim to fame

I will only be dust with wings

I will only be a used-to-be

So remember earthly kings

That this is only me

I’m a fleeting particle

On this spinning earth

A crumpled, briefly read article

Of the mention of my birth
