    The Lovely Dead/The Evil Dead

    Who are the lovely dead?
    At 55 and alive.
    Speed limit.
    Reading the obits. Look away, damn you.
    All those who at 94
    Die in their sleep.
    Wife still alive.
    Children in flats in Paris or New York.
    In love still.
    And their little cats alive alive O!.
    Or even at 89
    24 more years! Ok.
    Yes, I could do that.
    Yesterday at Barnes and Noble.
    You would think they would
    Be more specific about chest pains.
    Look around quick scurry from
    Medicine to Poetry and meet your daughter
    There
    Who are the Evil dead?
    Oh, don’t even think about
    Those poor young:.
    Certainly car crashes, or gaspings
    Before Everest.
    But here’s a guy at 55!
    Perhaps bitten by a poisonous toad in Brazil!
    That would be ok.
    No. Damn. Just dead.
    They don’t say why.
    Just because we really want to know.
    These are the Evil Dead.
    Around your age.
    Art Garfunkel why do you look so old?
    He’s still alive though.
    The evil dead crouch.
    One day you think the telephone is ringing.
