TARGETS

Charles J. Ingerson: Targets
Photo ©Copyright 2013 by Charles J. Ingerson
A twelve-inch tree trunk filled with ball
seventeen balls within a circle
twenty-two dead soldiers there
in mass shooting this day found
opening the New Year parade;

Shrouding in the foggy morning
some with coffee mugs in hand
others as if still in slumber sleep
targets in the gallery on the field
called Tennessee or Hell’s Gate!
