      she died of alcoholism
      wrapped in the blanket
      of a deck chair
      on an overseas
      steamer

      all her books of
      terrified loneliness

      all her books about
      the cruelty
      of the loveless lover

      were all that was left
      of her

      as the strolling vacationer
      discovered her body

      notified the captain

      and she was dispatched
      somewhere else
      upon the ship

      as everything else
      continued
      as
      she had written it.
