On the Pleasures of Orr (Part 3)


NO POSTMORTEMS, PLEASE
by Gregory Orr

No postmortems, please.
The world is immortal.
The world renews itself.

What about poems and songs—
Do they perish?
Maybe they only
Vanish awhile.
Maybe they go underground
To gather some other
Knowledge and come back
In another form:

New words, a new melody,
Yet somehow
The same beloved,
Singing the same song.
