Poem by Mary Hobson
Meditations on Marcus Aurelius
‘Wait in peace for extinction, or an altered state.’ I’m waiting in peace for extinction. I’m taking your splendid advice. But I would like to make one distinction; I don’t mean to go through it twice. So can you assure me that this is the absolute, ultimate end? The thought that you’re taking the piss is a bit of a downer, my friend. Suggesting that states can be altered is really not helpful, you know. I don’t like to feel that you faltered when I’m perfectly happy to go.
