The Gates on Basin Street

At Saint Louis Cemetery


On Basin Street

some of the houses have gates

out front

but none of them are locked

And some of the houses made of marble and stone

don’t have gates that lock

in fact

some of them don’t have gates out front at all

But everyone sleeps safe and sound

up off the swampy ground

at Saint Louis Cemetery #1


Basin Street
