It's puzzling that there is a line on the page and then "pain is a flower" begins at the right side of the page. Either it is part of the poem which comes before--which seems probably unlikely---or is a separate poem but with no title or is the title "pain is a flower" and if it is a new poem, why is it positioned at the right side of the page or the editor just screwed up? Thanks Capt. Co for the information on the "collected version":

and in the day and in the night
"Would you like your crap scrambled or over easy?"
"I don't know, does scrambled crap taste better?"
"No, it still tastes like crap."
"What about hard boiled?"
"Sunny side up?"
"Hmm. Maybe I'll just have the french toast..."
This is the Sunset Palms Hotel version of Death. The ending is abbreviated and there are a few miner changes. The lines all start with a capital letter and the spacing/pacing between some of the lines seems out of sorts to me. Maybe the editor felt he had the license.
