    To lie in the arms of my one true soullove
    wearing a Nicole Miller little black dress
    in a size six.

    To climb the cliffs at Big Sur and look down
    at the crushing waves below, and know
    that I have not lived without tasting octopus
    or running the Boston Marathon
    or pulling the ropes that ring the bells
    that call Christians and questioners to worship
    at St. Michael's church in Charleston, South Carolina,
    beloved city of the great Pat Conroy, whom I will meet
    before I meet Jesus Christ himself.

    I will slip into the afterlife quietly, but not before
    publishing one fine poem in a print journal
    of unquestioned quality and reputation.

    Oh, to grow one perfect purple orchid,
    or a bumper crop of giant pumpkins.

    And wade in the Bellagio Fountains in Vegas,
    where I will put a thousand dollars on black 17
    and not care if I win or lose, but if I win, to drop the cash
    in the hands of one lucky homeless fellow who sleeps
    on a cardboard pallet, and who will blow it all at the craps table,
    and not care of he wins or loses.

    To fade out of this world and into the next,
    with War and Peace resting on my falling chest,
    turned to the final page - the original Russian
    still on my lips.

      I wrote a long, loving critique of this a few days ago---too long I guess, because it evaporated when I hit "Post". Suffice to say, I loved it, related to the theme, and have come back to read it several time. I loved the final image of Tolstoy, resting on your falling chest--the final page-- "original Russian still on my lips." Grand finale, Excellent write

      Wow Annie, quite a list you have there. I do hope you manage to fulfil it. Very well written, and there is food for thought here....for all of us.

    Frank.
