Sitting Up With the Dead by Allen Berry

Published November 13, 2016
Chapbook - 34 pages, 5.5" x 8.5", ISBN: 9781539939955
There is no style in a self-painted
Thanatopsis someone else
will have to clean up.

This is supposed to be poetic.
It's supposed to mean something,
to make the world split open and
everyone take notice,
think for a moment: "wow, that was art."
