Lady In Cemetery

Poem By Dr. Charles A Stone

floating
above the stone
in custard-thick mist

alone
behind watery eyes
beyond a rapids of tears

she sits
on cold nights
waiting to be carried home

waiting
for Satan's wolf
to quench its appetite

calling
for passers-by
to show compassion

to forget
her transgressions
in the name of all that is holy

to pray
for her immortal soul
as she has prayed for forgiveness

afraid
that her inscription
will fade before her petitions

are heard
that she will be trapped
here forever - a woman without a name

a haunt
whose breath will shroud
tombstones until the end of time

where the lake's many faces
hide beneath the boughs
of willow trees in shade

just being with you would be my reincarnation.

Hoops Of Self

my mother leaped through hoops of self
and jumped into the same of her

Wherefore America

The walls of the empire are thick
and strong, hardened by the dried
