One good turn…

…deserves a voiceover.

Click ye and be sad.

From Mircea Popescu’s splendid reworking of Auden’s “Stop All the Clocks”, which was sad enough on its own but not nearly as viscerally upsetting or vividly obliterating as MP’s. I haven’t dealt too much with death, but when I do, I’m sure I’d rather die myself than remember this thing. Which, somehow, and deeply, is a compliment.
