Wake Up ↑

put the fun

in funeral

get black balloons. . .

scatter ash like confetti

and hang a banner:

“get well soon”

to show you’re ironic

(“bon voyage” altogether too predictable)

an upside-down cake at wake

or devil’s food,

and of course–

a piñata.

No sendoff is complete without

a creped animal

stuffed with bittersweets. . .

and later on,

if you sense the festivities are

beginning to


suggest a rollicking round of Russian roulette,

followed by Musical Coffins


and Hangman

. . .

played out as charades.
