  1. It occurred to me the other day that I have a favorite afterlife poem.

    OH NO
    by Robert Creeley

    If you wander far enough
    you will come to it
    and when you get there
    they will give you a place to sit

    for yourself only, in a nice chair,
    and all your friends will be there
    wearing smiles on their faces
    and they will likewise all have places.

  2. Hey, I just noticed this. I must not have set up email notification on comments for this blog. I think I remember this on MORE a while back. I love this poem. He's amazing. :)
