A bit of room

Emily knew “the cargo of themselves”
constructs a poor religion:
Emily knew the body comes together
only when it falls apart:
Emily knew the head contains
perforce a destructive universe:
Emily knew the swelling ground
produces its own applause:
Emily knew the dead don’t rise
until they break the law:
Emily knew the dead don’t rise
until all the world’s gone:
Emily knew the dead don’t rise
until there’s a bit of room aside.
