    dotsForget Most of Medots
    -------------------------------------------


    When I take the road inevitably traveled
    and slip from this precarious mortal coil,
    there will be a small, unadorned funeral.
    Those friends who will gather together
    to give me a final send-off in salt rain,
    pleaseódo not remember me as I am.

    Forget those days when I was silent,
    choked by the magnitude of the world,
    so vast, incomprehensible, and terrifying.

    Forget those days when I was angry,
    confused and infuriated by a society
    that I had utterly failed to interpret.

    Forget everything, except the rare nights
    when poetry poured crystalline from my lips,
    frothing out in a stream of relief and freedom,
    when all I was transformed to truth and joy.

    When I slip, and plummet into cold darkness,
    and you reminisce over my small tombstone,
    remember the times I cried from rapture
    beneath stars that keened sweetly from above--

    those are the only times that meant anything.

    Those parts are beautiful.

    I think the first stanza is perhaps a bit too long - your demise isn't really what the poem's about, it's about your life, and the parts you want remembered.

    By the way, your vocabulary is fantastic.

    Good write.
