1 Dead In Attic,
Did I know ya? Did ya serve
me beignets and chickory
coffee down on the banks
of the mighty Mississip?
Or were you the homeless
Veteran that asked me for a
dollar so you could get
yourself something to eat?
Or were you the little kid
with the great big eyes
peekin shyly from behind
the safety of your Mama?
Or were you the guy with
the Cajun accordion playin
such sweet sweet music that
set my feet to dancin?
Name sounds familiar.
(c) 2007, Karla Dorman (11/5)

|A very intriguing title. Reading the poem doesn't provide any answer. It rather provokes questions; many questions.
I can see "the great big eyes" and hear the sound of the "Cajun accordion"...
I like the way you ended this. Striking.
