Dame’s Rockets grow atop her grave: Pinks, whites and purples flourish here in this cemetery enclave where no one has visit in years. Her oblique, weatherworn headstone stands aside a nearby roadside hidden amid weeds, unbeknown to motorist who pass where she lies. An effortful deciphering failed to clarify her birth year Born April first [obscured] in spring Died forgotten this much is clear except for these fragrant bouquets that perfume above her grave today.
