ed markowski


the town was brimley,
the bar was dusty's,

the moon was waning,
the trees were rusty,

her name was echo,
she was a gambler,

she drove me to paradise
in a blue nash rambler...

one night stand
      tattooed on her hip
                    a four leaf clover



bottles & bibs, barney & kermit, jacks & jump rope, hopscotch & hula hoops, barbie & ken, brownies & girl scouts, guitar & piano lessons, the book club & knock knock jokes, 4H & cheerleading, boys & eye shadow, sally + jacob, high school, the prom, & that job before college...

home from Iraq
the gray streaks in her
