I can’t ever be totally downbeat when somebody dies, especially when they have accomplished as much as Pinter had in his 78 years on Earth. I was just getting into his work this year and he was as brilliant, intelligent and hilarious as any writer who ever lived. I strive to write dialogue as phenomenal as his.

    After Lunch (Harold Pinter)

    And after noon the well-dressed creatures come
    To sniff among the dead
    And have their lunch

    And all the many well-dressed creatures pluck
    The swollen avocados from the dust
    And stir the minestrone with stray bones

    And after lunch
    They loll and lounge about
    Decanting claret in convenient skulls
