    submission—

    silence

    you closed the door
    to your heart

    river
    muscle
    backbone
    rock

    altar
    virgin crown thorns
    hostia
    you place on my tongue

    “amen”

  2. A Different Memorial Memory

    When I think of wars and all that’s done
    In the name of Christ or Gods unknown

    I shudder.

    Remembering the dead, from wars or life
    I see never-ending strife and

    I shudder.

    I remember women, beaten to death
    By men who were their husbands

    I remember youth in the prime of life
    Whose own hand put them under.

    I remember needless deaths that come
    When there is no money for doctors.

    Drunk drivers slaughter on our roads
    Working mothers carrying too heavy a load

    Students who wish to walk
    Down a peaceful road.

    Babies in dumpsters, beliefs out of proportion
    Too much religion for abortion and

    I shudder.

    We seem to celebrate our heinous wrongs
    Sing of great war heroes in our songs.

    But today I remember the everyday deaths
    The senseless ones from neglect

    The brutal ones from crimes committed
    The needless ones from sins omitted

    For all these unsung poor and weak
    I lift my voice and speak

    But all that will come out today
    is
    a

    Shudder.

    2005 Memorial Day
