for laurie bird

 

whatever it was

or whatever they say it was

no one knows

though we all wonder

 

you would be sixty-five 

instead you are eternal

it seems fair trade

happy for you

sad for us

 

but not knowing 

is not easy

questions go unanswered

and will always go unanswered

 

on the other hand

we know

we know because 

there but for the grace of . . .

A well-written requiem for Lauire Bird. I remember her from Annie Hall.

She left us too early. I saw her in Two-Lane Blacktop. Nice she is still thought of.
