Best Poem of Eddie Roa

Leaving By Taxi

Tell him not to go
Tug at his coat sleeves
Cry out in plea
Won’t you?

He’s going now
All suited up in black
Sullen cabbie waits
In a gaudily festooned hack

Cab fare is ready
Two minted coppers
Covering his twin orbs
As the flag went down

The taxi crept
In an unhurried pace
The radio droned a hymn
I heard it hum a somber tune

The hack bucked and sputtered
As he bade goodbye to each block
Past known haunts and faces
Turning last into a gated arch
