Romeo and Juliet

In honor of April Fool's Day (and the great Marvin Gaye's death day), I will post a poem by Richard Brautigan instead of my regular post for all my dear friends who love the underrated RB. Hope you're having a great day!

Romeo and Juliet

If you die for me,
I will die for you

and our graves will
be like two lovers washing
their clothes together
in a laundromat.

If you will bring the soap,
I will bring the bleach.

I heard that Gaye would have been 69 today. Amazing how young that seems to me now, when not that long ago I would have called it old.
