Mihaelei Runceanu was MURDERED
My fat chihuahua dog chewed his hide bloody red raw for an hour
When will these tears dry & the moans cease & my loquats flower?
Langley base thrills: What the C.I.A. deploys ~ menticide destroys!
I vowed to be nice & I promised to be good and I swore not to gag
but for Christ's sake give me my rotten oranges you filthy, ratty hag
Criminal investigation in India takes its lead from America, dated:
18 January 2014: the lovely Sunanda Pushkar has been cremated
I have kicked the creaks & swigs from this or that brain-dead crag
Up yours cantankerous skank, as living with you's been a lewd drag
Doll heads pitching wildly sicken my innards and international bits
It's for what's availed that I have a care or give the adaptable 2 shits
Allow openings for manure-laden trucks to maneuver through slits
Poet's Notes about The Poem
On 1 November 1989, a personal friend of hers, Daniel Ştefănescu, visited her and insisted that they watch a videotape he had obtained (at the time, video material circulation was severely restricted by the communist government) . After Mihaela went to sleep, Ştefănescu entered her bedroom and smothered her with a pillow. He then stole jewelry, electronics, and some other items that were difficult to obtain in Romania at the time, such as meat, imported cigarettes, and gasoline. He used some of the gasoline to set fire to the apartment.
The murderer was discovered by the investigators the next day and subsequently put on trial. In 1991, he was sentenced to 21 years of imprisonment. In 2006 he was released for good behaviour.
Mihaela Runceanu's tomb is located in the Dumbrava Cemetery in her home town, Buzău.
