Memories of a War & Short Stories
by Avery L. Weeks


"Everything on earth
is but the dust of fallen
stars, and man himself
was once inside a star."

                       Poems by Avery L. Weeks

Prose

 As the years pass

 

does the essence of those 

 

to whom we once were close

 

the whole full bodied presence 

 

become harder to touch

 

Mere reflections through the 

 

prism of another time

 

kaleidoscopic vignettes

 

grasp in bits and pieces

 

fading flickering

 

scenes from a silent movie 

 

 

 

                                                                                   --Avery L.Weeks

                                   October 

                           It's October 23rd and would you believe

                                     that just a day or two ago

                                    swallows nested in my eve

                                   and bees with constant drone

                                  were busy making honeycomb

                                             It's colder now...

                  Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome

a gypsy's heart 

a rover's blood

a heart that's cloaked in fears 

a caravan passes

bids me come

I'm mired in a pool of tears

                   What Did You Do Today?

                             --Lt. Dean Shatlain

The note on the side was written in regard to a draft-dodger who fled to Alaska and got rich off The War.
