An Elegiac Poem in Memory of Joseph Schum
“To die is to be nothing.
Doesn’t even matter.
I’ve just peeked into the adjoining room.
Literally nothing has happened.
Nothing has altered from before.
If you are you and I are I,
The life we shared before with such warmth hasn’t changed at all.
We remain as we were to one another, whoever that may have been.
Use the familiar name for me.
In your typical casual tone, please discuss me.
Don’t differentiate in tone.
Don’t make unnecessary displays of solemnity or sadness.
Share in our joy at the thought of hearing one of our secret jokes.
Have a good time, he beamed, and he prayed that I would.
That my fame never fades from memory.
Let things come out in a natural way, without the interference of any ghosts.
There has never been any other meaning to life.
Basically, nothing has changed from how it always has been.
Consistency and regularity are guaranteed.
Is there any other explanation for this death outside a tragic accident?
Why does being invisible mean that I am forgotten?
There’s a corner around which I’m waiting for you to come around for a second.
Everything is OK now.
Nothing is destroyed or lost.
In a moment, everything will go back to normal.
The trouble of saying goodbye will make us laugh so hard when we see one other again!
