Six White Crosses

Six white crosses

 

 

forgotten memoriam

forgotten family of six

dirt filled mouths and noses

no seatbelt laws in sixty-four

blue velvet seats fifty-seven Chevy.

I can hear the screeching tires

see children flying in the air

with the greatest of ease

as a gnarled Oak opened its arms to greet

a heavy smile in its crotch

six more visitors this night

a long, long time ago

six white cross turning sallow.
