Did I know ya?

Chris Rose's book by the same title inspired this one.

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)

Too many of us don't take the time to think about who the misfortunate are. We should be more attentive, the next time it might be us. Thanks for opening my eyes. jln

Nah, I was the bum sitting playing my old six string outside the liquor store for nickels and dimes. Just kidding a great work and a good message passed along as well. We should never ignore what we see.

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.

A wonderful reminder about those that still remain in the attic, on the street, under the bridge and other places we shy away from.
