A Short Poem from 'The Last Night of the Earth Poems'

happy birthday

when Wagner was an

old man

a birthday party was given

in his

honor

and a couple of

youthful

incidental compositions

were played.

afterwards

he asked,

"who wrote those?"

"you did," he was

told.

"ah," he responded,

"it's as I have always

suspected:  death

then

does have some

virtue."
