Jim Boggs… Goodbye Mt Rushmore

 

Goodbye Mt Rushmore

 

Crossing Pine Mountain in winter

because

someone died tonight…

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

In Harlan…

Are we supposed to cook?

She was going to Mt. Rushmore-

North Dakota

before Cancer called last month.

An empty place at the table

gives thanks

for these Thy many gifts.

In the morning,

Black Friday

Finalizes the funeral plans.
