SAM SHEPARD (1943-2017)

Lou Gehrig’s disease
Killed thin, handsome Sam Shepard,
Playwright and actor.

Lou Gehrig’s disease
Said, “Fuck Obies and Oscars
Killing is my job

“Suffering, killing
That’s all that I am about”’
Sam: seventy three.

Weep for Sam Shepard
Buried Child now gone to death:
Weep for Sam, gone “West.”

(By whatever means,
By whatever Death took him,
By what deep, foul means)

THE SSSSSHIP OF STATE

Donald Trump now looks
More like The Titanic than
Like The Queen Mary.

DANS L’TOURBILLON DE LA VIE

Elle avait des bagues
A chaque doigt, des tas de…
Et puis elle chantait

She sported these rings
On each finger, and bracelets,
Then she sang, she sang

(Jeanne Moreau, 1928-2017)
