100,000 people arrive in Washington on Friday and convene Saturday morning at the Lincoln Memorial and Reflecting Pool on the Mall. The weather is sunny and pleasant, and so far the mood is calm.

Somebody just handed me this photo of a stiffI think I see smoke coming out of it
Why is everybody abusing this corpse?He props himself up to take itBack to the four walls of his skullWith his bored frown and deadly gaze
He should be marble by nowKept around on lawns for all to recallHis great works and deeds while yet deceased
Caller of the perfect crimesDeath loves a shining mark
—James Tate, from Gerald Malanga’s feature “A Portfolio of Photographs of Writers Accompanied by Poems.”

Somebody just handed me this photo of a stiff
I think I see smoke coming out of it

Why is everybody abusing this corpse?
He props himself up to take it
Back to the four walls of his skull
With his bored frown and deadly gaze

He should be marble by now
Kept around on lawns for all to recall
His great works and deeds while yet deceased

Caller of the perfect crimes
Death loves a shining mark
