Fresh as Posies

By Christa A. Bergerson

Death
was an abstract idea
when Shantiís step dad
took us to the Chicago cemetery
to piss on his friendís grave

I did not think
about my death, our deaths
I was naÔve
disturbingly curious
picturing the dead manís face

Two tomboys danced
circles
around a veteranís enclave
indifferent as the wind
because innocence bears no grace
