J.E.D. March-19-1927 - January-30-2021

funny how it ends
...what's a better word for funny?
absurd (sorry for the language, 
but more like completely fucking absurd)

no soft "peaceful" slipping to the next world
or slow dimming of consciousness
more like hurtling
a head first hustle, just out, and gone

that's it
bit of blood on the floor
a grocery list
a new wheelchair
an old walker

no fine Irish wake
just a hollow Zoom funeral


  1. That sounds like a harsh death these times of covid, zoom funerals, and sudden departures. I am sorry, Ollie. We never anticipated times like these.

  2. This wretched Covid is also the disease of solitude and sorrow. Makes our hearts weep. So sorry for your loss.


Thanks for helping with the development of Olsonomics.
