The Most Justified White Lie: On Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s Epitaph

All was beautiful
The truest prophecy
Of promise
And doom
That I can wrap
A feeble brain around.
All certainly was,
Even more than,
Beautiful.
Pretty in spite
Of no reason
To be pretty.
Living despite
The calling only
To survive. Real
Living.
and
 the greatest lie
uttered by sanity.
The epitome
Of knowing otherwise
Yet conciously misinforming.
DELIBERATELY
And I thought You
A great purveyor of
Truth – As if you were
Handing me some hope
On your tombstone,
You uttered the blacksheep
Half of your epitaph:

Nothing hurt.

The reason for all this is not reasonable. The reason, strictly art, Still makes no sense to me.
