all the writers that I love

never married at least not for long

and their life and their works were examined

and qualified after their death


they will write of me when I am dead

they will write of my work and my art and I hope

they do not forget my children

for they will be the beauty of my life


I see nothing wrong in this

the mistakes that were made will not be made twice

and the accomplishments of my life will not be them alone

and they will not be few


and they will write of my love

and it will be examined and qualified along with all the rest of me

and it will all

in the end

be meaningless
