Moon Shadow

Crissy Lennon

Dedicated to my mother, Debbie.


sunshine on soft dirt
roses on her bed
rain clears tears


my old mailbox
I open
nothing again

another day passes
closer to Christmas
the kids count


wings expand
into the darkness

firewood burning
inside a barrel
old men smile


looking hard
at the veteran's wall
rose petals

old tin roof
drops of rain
scent of dirt


smoke everywhere
from the tailpipe
daddy's beat up truck

rusty broken bridge
I drive across


over the horizon
I see myself
just one step closer
