What Happened on the Denton Road

Eleven poems. One story. The first reading was at 49 West Coffeehouse, Annapolis, May, 2015.


From the fourth poem, The Denton Road

     Fact is, the whole long road

     whatever you want to call it

     went on for miles and miles and miles

     Fact is, the Denton Road was

     swallowing up young girls

     like it was some kind of monster

    and the sad and sorrowful

    part of all that

    was nobody

    for a long time

    even noticed.
