What Kept Them Living

Wandering an old graveyard
I nearly trip over a low marker.
Words scratched into concrete,

“Baby Boy 1909.” I can hear
the talk. How it’s wasteful to
use such a beautiful family

name on someone who hardly
lived at all. It’s that practicality
that kept them alive, I suppose. IMG_3081
