Rock on Head

the hedgerow,

There’s a porno

That reminds me of Will.

Siphoning off our parents’ booze,

Heady, young,

Head-strong and self-assured,

Heading to the woods,

Hidden kids.

Jumping, Jump, Jumping

on burnt out cars

and drinking our mix

mixing alcohol and hot sun

Sunday? someday, someday lost, lost in hot haze

rushing to the head.

Walking back

We found a rabbit

with                              fierce eyes.

And with a Rock

We

Let

Him

Die

Dropped on his head.

On

His

Head

Some years later, later days and lesser friends,

Will’s dad jumped, jumping, falling, fell

Head first?

From an aqueduct.

Roman build, impressive tall arches.

Like a rock

On

His

Head.
