awake swimming in rain

When the next of kin, the beneficiary is found and claims the body

There are others who have the means to put on a show

to put aside

Heart failures

This morning
Military honors a sun
Another WWII vet buried the flags tri fold
The taps stir the memory

Those we forgot
Were holding on
To living
after horrified war

begins to flash
with a clench


Prep Room

What makes
the writing more

a river

Willamette (Wil-lam-ette)


The disadvantage is a learning opportunity

Opening wide

You can see the tumor attached to her lower abdomen
Heavy as a

As large as a

Second head

Telling her to
the ants crawl out of the sugar bowl

Cover her gossamer
In death there is no shame
