Poe’s Birthday

Before the last few hours of January 19th disappear, I wanted to wish Edgar Allen Poe a happy 199th birthday. This isn’t quite the tribute like the mysterious stranger, but it’ll have to do, seeing how I’m miles from Baltimore and out of cognac and my roses have all gone black.

So, say you’ve written your masterworks and are dead and buried. (Not the cheeriest thought, I know, but this is Poe we are talking about…) What would a mysterious visitor come leave on your grave?
