Killer Immortality

She beckoned to me, called me by my name                                    Elizabeth Cary Act 5 scene 1

But what sweet tone did this fair dying swan

and carried me away-                                                                      Emily Dickinson 754

my life had stood- a loaded gun-

to foe of his- I’m deadly foe

She came unmoved with pleasant grace                                           Elizabeth Cary Act 5 scene 1

As from an emerald ghost-                                                              Emily Dickinson 1593

A death tree, color gone, an Australian gum tree                             Sylvia Plath For a Fatherless son

you do not do, you do not do                                                         Sylvia Plath Daddy

of wars,wars,wars                                 

I used to pray to recover you

If only I knew where to mourn you                                              James Wright : A centenary ode:                 

                                                                                         Inscribed to little crow, leader of the

                                                                                             sioux rebellion in Minnesota, 1862

those looked that lived- that day                                                  Emily Dickinson 1593

Soon, soon the flush                                                                    Sylvia Plath Lady Lazarus

The grave cave ate will be


And killed it in an hour                                                                Sylvia Plath Fever 103

Dying for love                                                                             James Wright

Because i could not stop for Death                                              Emily Dickinson 712

and Immortality.
