Should I return

I want to be buried

in a pair of magic handcuffs, 

so if I rise from the dead, 

it will be a double good trick

Chapter II: 

Secret directions

As I lie in repose, discretely kiss

the face portion of my corpse,

square on the lips,

secretly passing me the handcuff key …

Tell no one.
