Going, Going, Gone


Never a get-up-and-goer you feel 
There’s nothing to keep you here, 
That you could slip away 

Any time now with nobody 
The wiser—or worse yet—nobody 
Giving a damn how your time was spent,

And oh with everybody who’s anybody 
Wishing you a long, safe journey 
To wherever it is you went.

  2. You know, Vassilis,

    I get just this slippery 'whoa! where did the poem go?' feeling whenever I read the post-avant.

  3. Joe--

    Your Delicious! also describes Conrad's comment about the post-avant to a "T"! Thanks to you both.
