Famous bench at grave site of Savannah poet Conrad Aiken. The bench and Aiken's selected epitaph, "Cosmos Mariner—Destination Unknown" are discussed near the beginning of "Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil" when author Berendt goes to sit on the bench to have martinis with one of Savannah's in-the-know society ladies.
