Reflecting on strange lives...


My Four Horsemen

 

Harold could quote Kant

Spinoza and Guide

for hours on end

and died.

Richard counted the days

from Sinday nights to Fryday afternoons

cursing the bastards

who never had to work a day

and died.

Herman spent forty years

leaning over the sides

of ships, wondering what porpoises said

remembered Francis of Assisi's

words at night

and his own

written on the steel gray bulkheads

and died. 

Chester was a mute

never took a single step

lay still as a dead stick

staring into the nursery ceiling

until he was forty five

and when he stopped...did he die?

Very interesting and creative. Apparently, Had something to do with their idiosyncrasies and passions. Don't we all?

Interesting. I would have liked to know at what ages the other men died also. Was Chester ever alive so he could die? I'd say yes, he was. Love it. Liz
