Maybe, I'm tergiversating about it: do
I want to lie there, waxy, mute,
and hear neither weeping nor laughter?
Maybe? The Current Subject
has no brother or no sister of the full
or half blood. I'm not sure
it will arrive at that, but if it does
most likely afterward there could be
a casserole at Aunt Mina's.
Aunt Lily could be there with her famous coogle!
All of my dead might be there.
I guess it could possibly
maybe come to that.
Probably I should just stand here and take it
like a man, probably.
