For: The Bird

Forty years ago, he was my great good friend, our heads nearly exploding as we tried to take in and figure out all that the world had to offer. A little later our paths diverged in a snowy wood, or something, but it was always a comfort just to know that he was out there, somewhere, and word of his passing three years ago left me deeply saddened. He went by Nathan Crow, but to me he was, is , and always will be The Bird.

You’re up in heaven now
say hello to Kurt Vonnegut
be patient with the angels
I know you won’t wanna, but
now you have eternity,
there’s no need to hurry.
