by Ross Vassilev

learned today
of the death
of Scott Wannberg

I’d read a few of his chaps
a few years back

that a thing that once
lived and breathed
is now dead
is not strange

that a thing that once
wrote poetry
is now dead:
now that is strange

of course
only the body is dead
not the rider

we’re all immortal
but death is still just the same.


  1. Great lines... "only the body is dead/not the rider." Thanks, I needed that. And Scott Wanneberg was a true poet.

    Stephen Jarrell Williams

  2. This poem is immortal...not strange...and so is Ross - Chris Butler
