Best Poem of Kyle Schlicher

The Bed Unmade

as i think of you
and the time
we no longer
keep
together
i stumble
precipitously
through
each
morning
constantly
dogged
by
the bed unmade.

How To Bury Grief

i was in country
about four months before
the war got too close.

as we stood there
looking down
at what was once
our
friends
i learned
how to bury grief.

how to bury it deep,
deeper
and
deeper.

it worked every single time.

every
single
time.

(Chu Lai RVN 8-29-68)
