The Lives I Lived

I hope my name is featured
in the Times' Lives They Lived 
issue of The Magazine that runs every December

after I die

and it is pure poetry,
nothing else,
nothing personal,
even though poetry is personal

The Magazine issue includes 
both the famous and the less famous, 
with a focus on lesser-known or forgotten stories

Together, the reflections offer a portrait of the recent past

and one day,
maybe me.
