johnny case (August 24,1947 / Fort Worth, Texas USA)
anguish arises from the battered corpse
in its release of a tormented life.
the outcast girl has wed the past
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)
