Extra NaPoWriMo: Wait Till I'm Dead

Don't measure me for a coffin.
Don't tell people my last words
were peanut butter.  Skip reading
my will to homeless in the park.
Refuse to swear on my grave
when I'm not in it yet.  Don't
ransack my closets for the shoes
you like, or show my property
to people who are interested
in buying.  Stop asking the church
for blessings, hoping that I'm
in heaven.  Don't speak of me
as if I'm past tense in third person.
Don't tell me to my face I'm a ghost.
