On the Eighth Day of...

Strawberry Fields forever.

I would write you a poem
As full of love as Frida for Diego
Souls entwined as John and Yoko
But all I have is a pen and a memory
Of a moment long ago
When a good girl could be bad
On a subway train in New York City
As the world disappeared
Into one shared heartbeat.

— Mark Butkus

On the eighth day of December we celebrate the lives of Diego Rivera and John Lennon. One was born this day in 1886 and the other was taken away in 1980.
