March is come
again, celebrating
too soon.
The funeral unplanned,
orations undelivered,
death waiting
earnest in the Forum.

  1. Ah, yes! I love this one because it isn’t all bombastic and pretentious, which is what I sort of expect from treatments (not yours, of course) of famous classical subjects. In fact, it’s frighteningly stark, almost matter-of-fact, which somehow has the effect of making it poignant. It makes the subject seem very real and every-day, I suppose. Thanks for posting it!
