(1977-2009)

COD: Cardiac arrest

The dark socket of the year
the pit, the cave where the sun lies down
and threatens never to rise,
when despair descends softly as the snow
covering all paths and choking roads:

then hawkfaced pain seized you
threw you so you fell with a sharp
cry, a knife tearing a bolt of silk.

— Marge Piercy

(Forest Lawn Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills)
