Eric at Gold Beach in Normandy, 2014
“The Leaves are Falling off the Trees” ~Normandy 2014
Tanks do not float
and we cannot go backwards.
West to east, last to first
8:00 to 6:30
Resistance bicycles, full moon,
coca cola, chewing gum,
Donkey in a small fenced field.
Cemetery cat, friendly, fat, chaffinches.
Sacrifice, courage, cowardice.
How does your garden grow?
Ten thousand crosses—With eyes squinted,
the markings look
like school children holding hands.
Red beach, barbed wire.
Fox green, fox red.
Easy green, easy red.
white, green, red.
