Poetry

In his memory

 

April 28, 2006

Forlorn backgammon in the heat

........and liverspots have

........brought you to your knees

Outside the border of silence

and fear

you can now comfortably grow

into the dimensions of your

age and feel the

serenity of a political argument

being just that...

........

You fall asleep in front of the television

complaining about the absence of real news

of wars and genocide and forgotten limbs in

mass burial grounds

in certain parts of the world

........

You cook the food lovingly and call your daughter in the New World

and your brothers in the Old

and you quietly try to forget.
