Silent

Ted is dead.

he stood alone among his peers

and preached

through smoke and jeers

in the back lot

of school.

 

Ted is dead.

Chaucer we read that morning

an appropriate

choice (a parody)

for the death

He died.

 

Ted is dead.

cut off his head           in a car

accident

he stood alone

through smoke and jeers

and preached

 

in the back lot

of school

I stood alone           silent

and watched

him die.
