May 1988


Part Two


a year ago

or so

our mothers met in K-Mart

and talked

as mothers will

of their growing single sons

and their thoughts on marriage

yours: the field is getting larger

mine: lets just wait and see



after your sudden fall

Im still waiting

you have the greatest field of all



Sadness comes at the death of peers,

even those unknown.  Twenty six years

is not enough, death too high a price

to pay for childhoods folly.
