July 20, 1999


Noon July 20, 1999


resplendent against a cloud spread sky

it flies

red, white, blue

tossed about the wind

half raised upon its staff

as though ashamed to fly

in the air that failed the son



On the news today they showed us a shot

of the Kennedy Compound at Hyannis Port

with the flag at half-staff in respect for a

departed son, his love, and their sister.
