Hommage to Dorothy Hart, Artist and Liver

On the 20th May 1975, I was brought back to Malerargues from the Nice hospital to recover after the auto route accident that had taken the lives of Roy Hart, his wife, Dorothy Hart and Vivienne Young, two days earlier. I and the 46 other members of the Roy Hart Theatre at that time started on the long road back to adjusting our lives into accomodating their absence. (Something that continues for all of us to this day). Part of that journey took the form of writing of this poem.
