The Obituary

An obituary’s an odd
Misdirection, all about life

Once the life is already gone.
If you didn’t know the person,

It’s not much different than reading
A profile of a scientist,

Say, or a new celebrity,
Someone living you’ve never met.

Celebrities and scientists,
For that matter, are popular

Topics for obituaries.
You read about someone, they live

In your thoughts, and a great many
People you know, you know this way.

You read the obituary
And, like that, someone comes to life.
