Farewell, Philip Roth


"If I should learn, in some quite causal way,
   That you were gone, not to return again -
Read from the back-page of a paper, say,
   Held by a neighbor in a subway train,
...
I should but watch the station lights rush by
   With a more careful interest on my face,
Or raise my eyes and read with greater care
Where to store furs and how to treat the hair."
