Remember… (Memorial Day)

Marigold Skye’s eyelashes

tremble like

a bullet- flooded soldier as

she flips

through tea -stained

photos of

her grandmother back in 1963…her grandmother who

wears freedom FOR ALL in a

floral full -flowing

flag ….of

…..protest….

a photo

…falls….

….

carelessly onto

Marigold’s lap

and a young soldier

stares up

at her…his eyes

as wide as a puckered kiss… and it’s as though he is waiting…

…waiting….waiting…

…waiting for…

… dying… for

…..for someone …his lips

as red as

flags
