Re: Purgatory

Just the idea of Purgatory used to scare the shit out of me when I was a kid. Catholic upbringing was all about blackmail, at least that's what it seemed like. Not complaining, just had a profound influence on how I think today. Me and God talk all the time even now. It's a bit one-sided. Sometimes ...

After nine

The smell of orange rind,

your hand hailing a taxi;
what joy when
coolness disappears
behind our closed door.

of my authentic self"

Ahhhh, but there is a catch when Mr. Death comes a-calling...some folks run out of time. Search over.

Please

Bury me, please, naked, clothes being such a waste; when I enter the other side, I don’t wish to be overdressed Do brush my hair, dead straight; don’t forget to pluck the eyebrows: I may be a stiff but I am not a disaster Please get a couple of titanium batteries, set my iPhone to replay Leonard Coh...
