Dying to Get Out

Taos, NM ----- Death is not a humorous thing, I suppose. But in passing this very old cemetery in Taos I noticed that this wooden cross was both inside and outside the barbed wire fence, as if it were growing upward (like a vine) and looking for escape. Of course, the old bad sophomoric joke is: "Why are there fences around a graveyard? Because people are dying to get in." Silly me.
