Transparent Words - Poetry

 

Philip Johnson

 too close in

typical english summer
a rain lashed cemetery turned mud slide

more mourners than I've seen in a long time

witnessed the coffin downward
laid to rest

shocked at the upset of the priest

his unearthly howl pre-curser to the sickening thump

of his form lost footage

 

 

Pg21
