Ton corps est comme un vase clos J´y pressens parfois une jarre Comme engloutie au fond deseaux Et qui attend des nageurs rares Tes bijoux ton blé tonvouloir Le plan de tes follesprairies Mon squale qui viendra te voir Du fond de moi si tul´en pries
Unherbe douce comme un lit Unlitde taffetasdecarne Une sourcedansle midi Quand l´ombre glisse et medécharne Un sentiment derémission Devant taviolette de Parme Me voilà soumis comme unpion Sur l´échiquier que ta main charme
Mon organe qui fait ta voix Mon pardessus sur ta bronchite Mon alphabet pour que tu croies Que je suis là quand je te quitte Ma symphonie dans ton jardin La mer dans ta rivière close L´aigre parfum de mon destin Sur le delta d´où fuit ta rose
L´odeur canaille de ta peau Tendue comme unarc vers sa cible Quand pointe de mes oripeaux Le pointde mire inaccessible Du feupour le bel incendie Que j´allumerai à ta forge Cette nuit puisque tu me dis Que çate remonte àlagorge Et moi qui ne suis pas régent De tes propriétés câlines J´irai comme l´apôtre Jean Dormirun peu sur ta poitrine J´y verrai des oiseaux de nuit Et leurs géométriques ailes Ne pourront dessiner l´ennui Dont se meurentles parallèles
One day, you're going to die. And when you do, your online presence — like your social network profiles, your blog comments, and your web services — will serve as your very first memorial. Here's how it'll play out on Facebook. More than any other service, Facebook will be the most important fixture in your digital mausoleum. I mean, it's a basically a catch-all for your memories, with timestamped comments, loads of personal info, and pictures. It's the first place acquaintances look after someone dies, and the first place the press will look if your death was particularly public or tragic. And Facebook knows this. They've got a healthy help section for the bereaved, which lays out what how one can deal with a dead profile. Here are the options: • Report an account to be memorialized: Accounts can beturned into digital insta-memorials. This is a service Facebook actually offers: "Please report this information... so that we can memorialize this person's account. Memorializing the account removes certain more sensitive information like status updates and restricts profile access to confirmed friends only." This is a safe option, since it gives the deceased a certain degree of privacy, without eliminating their memory forever. As depressing as it may sound, there's a form you can fill out for this. Take the account down: From the memorialization FAQ: "We do honor requests from close family members to close the account completely." If you make a special request (again through the form) you can have the account removed completely. You've pretty much gotta be someone's parent or spouse for this one, though. • Sue for access: Need to see your family member's Facebook profile, for closure? This treads well into some gray area, but it turns out, you can sort of do this. Sometimes. From Legacy Locker: "If your family is intent on gaining access to your Facebook account, they'll have to resort to legal action against Facebook. Not surprisingly, this is becoming increasingly more common... The deceased was a young adult who had been hit by a drunk driver while on his motorcycle. The mother was aware that her son was a prolific Facebook user and wanted access as part of the grieving process. She wanted the ability to communicate with his friends and maintain the connection to her son. His virtual self was one of the key things she had left to remember him by." The woman had access to her son's account, and it was only when Facebook realized the boy was dead that they revoked it. She sued to get it back, and eventually: "Facebook provided the parents an electronic snapshot of their son's Facebook page to see everything contained within it. This included all messages, wall postings and photographs. Facebook also permitted ongoing access to the public portion of the page. This is akin to the view that any "friend" would have of the page." It's not a click-box choice, but it's an option. • Leave your login info behind: Write yourself a will, of sorts! Entrust a family member or spouse with your login info and instruction as to what to do with your profile. It might make for an awkward conversation now, but it'll be worth it. So, that's what could happen to your profile after you've passed on, or, what you can do if a friend or family member has done the same. Any more info, or experience?
