    Dearest Oliver,
    the world's been busy
    pouring in tributes for your passing.
    And I, reading them all,
    have mine to add. I must
    Thank you, Oliver.
    Like I did Iyabo, Dickinson, Plath, Sontag, Austen, Bronte, Woolf, Beauvoir, Kane and Agatha.
    You all are lovely gals of a kind, Matriarchs!
    Once, in a collection of passed down, coffee-stained pages,
    Did I not come across your truths not far from mine?
    "Life may force upon you
    a long, black dress of gloom. And make a threat
    of hanging a coat of angst
    for bequeathment. Still,
    do not despair.
    Own your wits.
    Live full and learn.
    Love. Trust.
    Walk the fields; climb the mountains.
    Smell the flowers; whistle the dogs.
    Wake with sunrises - and,
    if a million stars
    wink down at you on a breezy night,
    Drop your worries at once and elope with their twinkling lights.
    Oh! What a joyful reawakening!"
    was what I wrote for me to you that noon.
