Ode to LA While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased Summary

The three-and-a-half-page poem "Ode to LA While Thinking of Brian Jones, Deceased" tells the story of a man who kills himself in a swimming pool in the prime of his life, and of Morrison's reaction to his death. In addition to expressing his grief and shock at the tragedy, he wishes him well in the afterlife, and hopes he went out smiling, looking forward to what lay ahead. He pays tribute to the ways in which Jones contributed to the culture of creativity of which he was a part, and closes by supposing that he won't decay like some men do, but will have leaped directly into the beyond, body and soul.
