In Memory of R.F.K.

Lest anyone doubt that our country is subject to political assassination, I publish a poem I wrote years ago:

Crumpled between the large copper kettles

Resting upon the smooth gleaming steel surface

Where everything should be white and clean

A man becomes the spring of an unwanted red stream

Writing the death warrant of a despondent grieving nation
