Treasure Island

Keith Rushing


Bleakly remembering


The fallow flags lull in a languid sway at half-staff,
flaccid reminders for those whom quickly forget,
limp in the wind as faint as that day
commemoration of anniversaries' memorization's
plaintive anguished lamentations jeering at
the stuffy affected and tired testimonies;
torpid, dense and listless as the President's third rehearsed
recited repeated languorous speech of that day
