About Suzuki Roshi    

A poem for Philip by Gene DeSmidt
(who was at the cremation)

Phillip Flies:

His spirit alive & heart still warm
A cold dead body in a cardboard box
Frozen raspberry necklace
super sonic coffin
Open the steel hangar door
And with a mighty roar
That body's gone forevermore!
See ya later alligator!
