RIP Mary Oliver, 2019

There was a simple scrawling on the Temple at Burning Man in 2019, which read, "RIP Mary Oliver, 2019." I'll never forget the feeling of spaciousness of that moment, or the radiance of the bike ride afterward.

RIP Mary Oliver

Sunny freaks are out

"nothing," but clear blue; temple

bells the radiance.
