William Irwin Thompson, "Witikonerstrasse, Zürich" (1996 or earlier)

Editorial Notes

  • While the poem might seem to reference EXIT– an organization that fights "for self-determined living and dying" and that "will enforce your right to refuse treatment in the event of illness and accident" – this interpretation would seem to be anachronistic, as EXIT only moved to Witikonerstrasse 61 in 2017, i.e. long after the poem was published.
