My Year of Living Dangerous

I just missed that
jagged
sidewalk crack
earthquake caused it 
Bobby said

A jetting eye
caught the rocker coasting
to and fro
on a sad white porch
March 1968

They said you were crazy
and to steer clear
but I gave you an apple
producing a smile
a laugh
and the freedom to just be

We Kelly'd around a lamp post
losing track of time in the warm twilight
of childhood 
and life
then you shared with me a secret

a tree,  knot,  hole

that held a motherload
of silver
foil

and we were richer than rich
till my dinner bell rang
and your hidden voices sang
in March 1968
