McNulty wanted to attend his own funeral so
he made all the arrangements with priest, and church,
and coffin and hearse, and pallbearers although he
had so very often noticed that Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer
were not really at their own funeral. it was only an imitation.
he wanted to try to go to his really.
all he could think of was what was it like after death?
were all his loose ends well tied up?
mourners clad in dark clothing approached
his coffin at the funeral home where
all the could think of was it was
lucky he was not allergic to the flowers
