Christopher Hitchens in VF

“They told me, Heraclitus; they told me you were dead.
They brought me bitter news to hear, and bitter tears to shed.

I wept when I remembered how often you and I had tired the sun with talking, and sent him down the sky.”


Christopher Hitchens in Vanity Fair on losing his voice to malignant cancer. It will be a great loss to see him go.
