Anthony Quinn
B. 4.21.1915 Chihuahua, Mexico / D. 6.3.2001 Boston
Throat Cancer/Pneumonia

Anthony Quinn dies every year
Doesn’t he?
Every year I can remember he’s died
Every televised “Who Died This Year” list I can recall he’s been on
To zither music, like clockwork
Like Jesus
I skip a breath as the loss is impressed on my chest
Void become sign: something vital’s gone out of the world
A headliner, down
No more to dance or fight or make art or brush its teeth with retsina
The survivors, diminished
Its strong white teeth like a wolf’s!
