Hi Julie,

Thanks for your kind words. It's good to see you again too. The thought is rather sad but I like what the picture wrought in you.

Anthony North

Yes, so sad. Yet such a damning, and possibly true, statement of what we're becoming.


*tears* Julie, your picture conveys something of that too.

Cynthia Short

Yes, quite sad, but also quite powerful. The end really punches you in the emotional "gut".


Quite a powerful poem.A realisation of the truth right at the end...Andre Gide wrote about this.Really very good.

Paul Oakley

Moving, Julie! I am touched by the request the poem leaves: that we not show our backs to the dying. Powerful symbology.

Uma Gowrishankar

Julie, very moving and powerful. Really gets gut wrenching when you look straight at the readers and talk to us.

Joseph Harker

That email/text message thing is one of the most sinking feelings... in October, I got a text that someone had passed away. And it was just... I don't know, disrespectful, shocking, unbelievable, etc. It's a very raw emotion you summon up here, and you execute it with such grace. The little variations of the title throughout form an echo that rings in the heart.


thank you...you reminded me of something that occured once and set the feelings straight...powerful...

rob kistner

very candid and moving piece...
