“Today” by Alan Fox

Alan Fox


We met in rooms
for the very sad time

the home we shared
for thirty-odd years.

Our tears were not
for all we had lost,

but washed against
all that might have been.

Tribute to Angelenos


Alan Fox: “I’ve lived in Los Angeles my entire life. During the past few months I have been changing a lot, leaving a marriage of 35 years and breaking previous patterns while I cling to a basic identity which is and always will be that of a stranger visiting this out-of-the-way planet in order to help people by becoming one of us and forsaking both former identity and, possibly, immortality. Once again, with gusto.” (website)
