from the new book by kathleen jesme from the poem online

seemingly missing a punctuation makk, but

I just learned that Emme Bee Bernstein committed suicide three weeks ago. I don't know if I'llbe able to write a response to her life, death, or thinking, since I didn't know her, but I want to mark her death, in hopes of *coming to terms* someday.
