When Writers Die

[Portage, March 8, 2010]

Stuart Kaminsky died last fall
A sad fact learned today while
Spring thunder dragooned above
With a puckish mendacity,
God’s tears dripping in the air,
Over the loss of Rostnikov
And Chicago cop, Lieberman.
It struck me how death
For authors is a group event
Passing not just the pen-pusher
But all those pushed through the nib,
Characters mourned as human.
