Holiday 2014 - THE POTOMAC

Dover AFB

   Kritin Kelly

That cold yellow toe in the E.R.
The lonely arm in the trash

Six wedding bands cut off
Dropped in a clear Ziploc bag

Chest wounds bled out:
Sea-warm waves, red
Slicking the rough concrete floor

Six big boys in the freezer
Way past the prayers

Zip them up tight so they don't
Thaw out too soon.
