For Jesse, A Poem

How many noticed the flag at half staff/ As we crossed the dam beside the silver lake/  On the way to say goodbye/ As if the threads of pregnant meaning/                               Knew you had gone?

We gathered in that small New England town/ On a day chill and bright to freeze our brief tears/ Icy prisms spilling light/ Remembering that we still lived, your/                         Laughter inside
