Posthumous poet

The lines go on in higgledy-piggeldy.
A new theme on space is imposed
A poem by chance, a certain spring’s
Gorgeous nothings like the naughty
Poet aunt who wrote them time ago.
She persisted to write posthumously-
What an idea, this business of dying,
Before poems spring on poem space.
How exciting to die for poemspace !

(Gorgeous nothings by Emily Dickinson)
