    I can't use it anymore.

    I feel like I'm knockin' on heaven's door.

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    Sounds if another might have taken his own life. If he did what shame. R.I.P. God will cleanse your soul.

    He's not listed in ODMP so I suspect you're right. Very sad.
