she died of alcoholism
wrapped in a blanket
on a deck chair
on an ocean
steamer.
 
all her books of
terrified loneliness
 
all her books about
the cruelty
of loveless love
 
were all that was left
of her
 
as the strolling vacationer
discovered her body
 
notified the captain
 
and she was quickly dispatched
to somewhere else
on the ship
 
as everything
continued just
as
she had written it
