Colección: "good grief" organized by Jackie Clay

I have read about grief

as though it were a parade

we could watch from the sidewalk:

Anger marching just ahead

of the veterans

in their smartly pressed uniforms

but several blocks behind

The brass band

of Denial– while    Acceptance,

the grand marshal of it all,

brings up the rear in a Cadillac

like the exclamation point

at the end

of a run-on sentence;

- Solidarity, Art Nahill
