Best Poem of Linda Coker

Dead Men Don't....

His face was still and lifeless
Like I've never seen it before
The form resembled my loved one indeed
But I really was quite unsure

The mouth had fallen open
The brow had lost its stress
Such peace surrounded this motionless man
At his horizontal rest

I leaned in for a better glimpse
Then came an alarming ROAR!
I knew right away that this stiff was mine
For dead men just don't snore! !

(2005)

Read the full of Dead Men Don't....

Elusive

It bounces in and kicks about
If I focus upon it, it bounces out

It does not stay, but leaves a trail
And I’ll follow for hours to no avail

I strain brain cells to bring it back
But I pull up nothing, my rope’s gone slack
