Even immortality is nothingness when faced with the label of ‘old hat’.

Every crooner on the planet
is dead and buried and
a stack of all their favorite records
is in the closet of every second-hand
store in the United States
(though they fetch a fine price
in some parts of Europe)

For all their words and melodies,
all the crooners have to teach
in the end, is that crooning
doesn’t get you anywhere
but dead and buried.
