A Final Request

And when they close
the book on me
and set it on a high shelf
between Petrarch and Poe,

let them say it was wrong,
let them say it was shocking,
let them say it appalled even
the most diplomatic of palates,

just hold their tongues
and bind their lips
before they dare say
it wasn't worth the read.
