Memorial Day
an old couple rereads
the letter

Dave Bacharach
last goodbye --
scent of his wool coat
deeper into my nose

Alice Frampton

this spring...
no one told the flowers
that you are gone

Shane Gilreath
funeral day --
still I hesitate
to open Momís purse

Allen McGill

a snowflake melts
on her dimple

Nara Bauer

silent monitor --
every unbreath whispers
"he is gone"

Beki Reese
