Day of the Dead Altars
Today, our plaza’s filling up with Day of the Dead Altars. Flowers, decorations, photos, information about the deceased, cigarettes, and of course, food and drink. And this makes me think about how I’ll be remembered. How any of us will be remembered. As wrestlers, plumbers, lovers, drinkers, writers, bad or beautiful bloggers?
What’s my altar going to look like? And will it be next to Seth Abramson’s? What’s going to adorn Blake Butler’s altar? Justin Taylor’s? Amy McDaniel’s? Adam Robison’s? etc, etc……I’m in a rush to see. But, we’ll be there soon.
So, what’s yours going to look like? What contain? Who will visit it? Who will care? Who will stand in front of your remembered image and paraphernalia and declare “Damn that guy was Amazingly Verbose”??
