Poetizing spontaneously without combusting

Gone

 

Floating-green-beretGone

In honore of GB7 wherever you are.

Suddenly he simply stopped showing up

 

He no longer was in your dreams

let alone at the corner store
your special friends meeting place
or even at the forum you always frequented

The newspaper boy on the corner
said he hadn’t gotten his daily paper for several days

The shoeshine guy said something similar
and that he missed the tips and the man

The grocer grimaced – “I never liked the bum
who cares where he is?”

We all cared in our own way I guess
but it didn’t really matter
he was gone
