To a stranger who has died

Amy Michelle Mosier

To a stranger who has died
Money is nontransferable –
That the Egyptians tried –
The kings – they’re unconsolable –

But I know of things that follow:
A reputation is transferable –
Fame – too – worth much in gold
As well as a pretty caricature –

Others will take their talents
And I – by a memory that’s perfect –
Will take – cheating osmosis –
My poems with me into death.

    If i gained a pretty caricature that survived only briefly I’d still find it fun to brandish it w glee so my ex would feel her vindictive predictions were proven wrong and I’d be so glad to be so petty.
