So what's up with all this dying?
It's cruel when icons turn into angels
leaving the rest of us behind
while they hide in celestial pockets
reincarnating into clouds.

breathing into space instead of here.
So long marianne delta lady purple rain
take it easy ziggy stardust demon barber
blazing saddle princess edge.
You're the name of the rose we won't forget.
