S Black

in loving memory

soap and water
couldn’t touch the heavy stuff
that stained the blood
which accounted for them
at fifty-seven and fifty-one
sitting proudly now
with the other souvenirs
and remembered vaguely
by distant relatives
who cut the once perfect lawn
between the rain
on bank holidays for money
