  117.     

Vietnam War Memorial

A block of marble
and twenty six letters of the alphabet
etch so many young names
onto history

Wandering alone
amid the mass grave
an old woman has at last found
her only child
and with her eyes tightly shut
her trembling fingers now feel
for the mortal wound
on his ice-cold forehead

(1985, Chicago)

  118.     

Chicago Serenade

Evening
a desolate street

A car with its windows tightly rolled up
stops for the red lights

Suddenly
in the rear-view mirror
a dark figure
looming

Sir, buy...

The ashen driver
steps in fright on the pedal
and rushes through the red lights
like a rabbit running for its life

... buy some flowers
today’s Valentine’s Day

(1985, Chicago)

  119.     

The Beach Boys had their Kokomo..

The Beach Boys had their Kokomo
The Beatles, Drive My Car
Sinatra loves Chicago
Billie Joel's Just The Way You Are

Modonna's Like A Virgin
Cash was the Boy Named Sue
Carly Simon thinks that You're So Vain
Ray Charles Can't Stop Loving You

ZZ Top wears Cheap Sunglasses
Fleetwood Mac tells Little Lies
The Stray Cats want to Rock This Town
And Willie Nelson loves Blue Skies

Elvis loved his Blue Suede Shoes
Tom Petty Won't Back Down
Garth is singing at The Dance
On Johnny's Poor Side Of Town

  120.     

When Love becomes a vehicle

Driving that blue Volvo
Parked strategically in a free spot
Escorting me through Chicago streets
Adept at the social nightlife scene

I was won over by one toss of the Frisbee
Because you set yourself apart immediately
Owning the room you only stayed briefly
I knew you understood how to have fun

While you have been the subject of other poems
I know in reality I never knew you
Sure admiring, wondering considering from afar
Your symbol remains a used blue Volvo

Now a mature, responsible adult
I would never play Frisbee when going out
Unless I was at a golf course
Alone with my daughter of course
 
Stephanie Eve Kane Arado
