If you were famous –
Don’t die on the same day someone
More famous died –
Unless you want to die in

Notes to this poem…
I still think about how it was so unfortunate for Farrah Fawcett to have died on the same day Michael Jackson did, which I wrote about on my general blog. Next to nobody cared that she passed away.
The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
