Death Mask

In Memory of Joyce

Mouth agape

w/spectral howl?

“Hellalujah’ of salvation?

A penitent “NO!”

Or the final redeeming

Exit for the soul?

Death Watch

For Joyce:

Leaden clouds shroud sun

humidity smothers breath

waiting storms rale

thunder moans

while light flashes on horizon

before darkness comes

Mighty Oaks

About family, immigrants, Galveston, Hurricane Ike and destruction:

Mighty oaks greeted

Zayde’s Galveston landing

All survived violent furies

’til Ike’s blitzkrieg released acrid death

& oaks fell

1 by 1

Conscious death

brain kidnaps words

flaccid limbs bar escape

tubes drip life

silent screams

none hear

plea 4 dignified salvation
