Rookie - 147 Points (August 24,1947 / Fort Worth, Texas USA)

Aftermath - Poem by johnny case

anguish arises from the battered corpse
in its release of a tormented life.

the outcast girl has wed the past
and i
absorb a small portion of her remains.

gracious society tries to make amends
with flowers strewn across her grave.


(from Quintet for a Murdered Outcast)
