GHOST RANCH

GHOST  RANCH

Finally shag carpet  &  a corduroy  sectional

Burned the stained old blue    wall to wall

where poodle threw  up  daily     How many 

cookies did you give him?   Soon to be doctor

cousin asked   & counted 26 as the last   child

coughed up an answer    Living room where

Kennedy  was  shot   and Nixon resigned           The stereo played the Blues

 

And a white ghost frequented the balcony

where 13 puppies lay    steam rising from

hot bodies   one freezing winter day    A girl

struggling with afterbirth    The ghost now         backing away

Winter  2012
