Tall memorial

If they made a statue in my name

it would probably

be a mere five feet tall

or under

and shit upon by pigeons

and crows, like all other

statues, but they won’t

build me in bronze or marble

or granite, so I won’t look

any special, covered in

bird shit. Those honours

are reserved for special

men; honorable men;

men unrecognizable to the average

squatter on the sidewalk.

Those who have lost the ability

to stand up straight, can hardly

expect a very tall memorial.
