Notice

This evening, the sturdy Levi's_x000D_
I wore every day for over a year_x000D_
& which seemed to the end_x000D_
in perfect condition,_x000D_
suddenly tore._x000D_
How or why I don't know,_x000D_
but there it was: a big rip at the crotch._x000D_
A month ago my friend Nick_x000D_
walked off a racquetball court,_x000D_
showered,_x000D_
got into his street clothes,_x000D_
& halfway home collapsed & died._x000D_
Take heed, you who read this,_x000D_
& drop to your knees now & again_x000D_
like the poet Christopher Smart,_x000D_
& kiss the earth & be joyful,_x000D_
& make much of your time,_x000D_
& be kindly to everyone,_x000D_
even to those who do not deserve it._x000D_
For although you may not believe _x000D_
it will happen,_x000D_
you too will one day be gone,_x000D_
I, whose Levi's ripped at the crotch_x000D_
for no reason,_x000D_
assure you that such is the case._x000D_
Pass it on.

—Steve Kowit
