The Reunion
The sixty-year reunion
of the class of '55
was quite a celebration
for the ones who had survived...

then Milford, Meeks, and Moody
who like old crows, perched and cawed

Sylvia's Double Life
She bustles

grouse, groan, growl
groggy gripes

crunch, smack, munch, they eat
hurry boys-
catch the bus
flurry and fuss all the way
outdoors, scuffing floors

She sighs, so
relieved, can't...

Where skylark and Grouse Linger.
Into the bowels of a troopship,
No scent of Morning Dew, No Bird song
Only sweat and urine,
And the distant sounds of war.

envious of literary skill

This explains much

Lately,...
