Epitaphs for the Poets–coming soon!

Coming in early April: Wesli Court’s Epitaphs for the Poets!

“Wesli Court” is the anagram pen-name that Lewis Turco, author of The Book of Forms, uses when he writes his traditionally formal poems and modern versions of Medieval verse. With typical good humor, Court has written Turco’s epitaph as well (though prematurely):

R.I.P. LEWIS TURCO
May 2, 1934 –
Here lies at last and out of work,
The syllabubble wordsmith Turk
Who finds he cannot now resort
For rime to his sidekick Wesli Court.

Do you have a hero you’d like to write an epitaph for? How about an enemy?
