After Great Pain, a Formal Feeling Comes.

I'm looking for a Lynda Barry comic that ran after 9/11, illustrating Emily Dickinson's Poem #372 which begins, "After great pain, a formal feeling comes."

Maybe it ran in the Village Voice? Not sure - I read it on a computer in the business school library at the University of Michigan. Does anyone know if this appears in any of her books, or if it's online anywhere now?

A dear friend of mine died over the weekend, who loved Lynda Barry, and I would really like to get ahold of this in some form or other, so if you can provide a title, cite, or even (oh, I hope) a digital file I will be delighted and appreciative.
