I'm sure you heard the news about Saturn. No, not the Saturn that was discovered to have an extra super ring in space. The Saturn that produced cars. Last week the deal to save the brand fell apart. People mourned the loss of an iconic, if not quite classic car brand.

But poet Aaron Belz remembered that when times are tough, we often lose things. It may be sad, but we've got to keep in mind that the things we depend on are still there . . .

Aaron Belz is a poet with a talent for saying goodbye. Check out his tributes to Michael Jackson and Patrick Swayze. Also, check out his blog for new work and a cartoony picture of the man himself.
