A PTSD Nightmare

gbc_Poet_Laureate_Elaine.png     Elaine_Thomas-2.jpg


A dream last night
40 Vietnam warriors
Sitting stoned
Around a fire
In Central Park
With the bombs
Still exploding
Inside their bowels
While seagulls jeered
Along the dead seacoast
A blackbird named Jonathan
Rose with a catfish
In its hungry mouth
I had a dream last night
A little black boy
Singing inside a burnt-out Chevrolet
Where have all the flowers gone
While the bar next door
Blasted the mantra
Let it Be
