[in margin] 10/11/2020
remembering their smiles
the Jeannies ["i" in "Jeannies" is dotted with a heart] in our heart
here in our golden years
red, orange, yellow
on a blue background
colors of the morning sky
sunrise over prison wall
bright colors descending
into a dark hole
old men staring out
from cold prison cells
through the shattered window
of all their lost souls
looking for old daydream
left on a prison bus
from when they were young
now only lost memories
brought back by the sunrise.
P.S. I'm going to try to call this week, Steve Burkett
before this is posted[drawn smiley face]I love you[drawn heart] Happy Birthday
my dear friend
Am I too old to be mad Little Mel
have I forgotten how to use my words
to fight with a poem
about the truth without fear
