April Cerise, In Memoriam
s. a.
August 2013
mama taught me
tricks of the trade
daddy encoded sounds
in my dna.

humidity thicker than honey
drawl thinner than air;
when i speak
all is fair.

tomorrow is not today
tonight i float away.

georgian by blood
tried and true.

sweet poppy
and molasses,
you give the strength
i lack.

haints and ain't,
i'm here not to say.
