Jam Tomorrow

Poem By Linda Hepner

It's If that is the word
that makes one's thoughts absurd;
I taste the sweet or don't
I yield to sour or won't,
I'll go to hell or not,
I'll live or die or rot.
My pain will not subside
but won't last when I've died
which sheds light on King Saul
who said, Just end it all.

LRH 12.1.07
In reply to GWH Jams Today

If there is an eternity, you’re damned
in it, unless you set aside your sorrow,
and wait until you feel no longer jammed
today, prepared to wait for jam tomorrow.

Gershon Hepner

In an article on the letter of Ted Hughes Craig Raines writes(TLS,11/23/07) that Ted Hughes wrote to Aurelia Plath: “But if there is an eternity, I am damned in it.”

I'm going to show my ignorance and ask whether King Saul REALLY said that...Is there another interpretation? I like the give and take of this poem but dont like the last two lines, Linda. Raynette
