Notice on courthouse wall


Barely seen

barely peeking

under clutch of notices like leaves

from a tree barely hung

about to fall

 

Hands dig though

discord notice isolated

 

Unclaimed body

Clayton Anderson

died Jan. 16, pneumonia –

still with us —

must be claimed by

March 16, or will be

disposed as per county code

notice dated Jan. 20

 

“That’s terrible,”

A man says as he hurries by

 

Another man strolls by

bulging case of papers mouth moves

“Yeah,” he says to a blue

thing on the side of his head

About cwanager77

Hi, I'm Chuck, and I'm the author of "Jackson Flats," which you can find on Amazon.com and Kindle books. My Web page is charleswanager.com. The novel's packed with humor and is a fast read. I also like to travel. I'm especially happy when I can do both and tell others about my experiences. I write about my travel over the globe and close to home. With my posts, you read not only about my travels but about ways to travel lightly and cheaply, and where to stay for less. Travel the world close to home and far away with my posts.
