Peter Orlovsky 1933-2010, so long old friend.

my heart breaks this weekend
let us sing a litany  for Peter Orlovsky who is now home with Allen.
let us sing a litany for Leslie who writes poetry in another place
we shall remember those who go before us and
strive to be what they were to those behind us.









life ends

life ends abruptly.

the shadow ceases.

loss is registered but
life goes on,

indelicately as it
must.
