The Art of Disappearing

by Naomi Shihab Nye

I came across this poem while browsing in a book store; not having enough to buy the book - I copied the poem instead. I like this poem because it reminds us of the fleeting nature of our lives. And cautions us about wasting our time on seemingly trivial matters.
But I am especially fond of its slightly anti-social tone.
