Death of a Poet by Indran Amirthanayagam



          Death of a Poet

After the poet,
who remains?
We have to fill

absence, distract
ourselves
with words

and music
until sadness
fades, and we look

to the sky,
see his face
in cumulus cloud,

shining out
of the sun,
and think

he is not
the only one
smiling

in Heaven
beckoning us
to think beyond,

the now,
what
happened

to his body
and to our
history.
