The Red Wagon

the red wagon
in the yard

a famous poet
and celebrities

a place of parties

two famous talking heads

sunday afternoon
the ambulances
the ecstacy overdose

her asshole boyfriend

just through with it

the red wagon

in the yard

The Little Red Wagon

the little
red wagon

in the back yard
suggesting poetry

five young women
weekend parties
young men
talk and laughter
past two am

sunday afternoon
tv cameras
two news vans
aerials unfolding

the ecstasy overdose

four young women
then three and two

the little
red wagon

resting wordlessly
in the back yard

Honourable mention in the 2nd Annual
Geist Erasure Poetry Contest.
