Anthony

In early grade school I remember

having a school assembly

Where my class was informed

we lost a kid named Anthony

All these years later,

I don’t know why it stuck w/me

Except it was one of my earliest

experiences of tragedy

I never got to meet him, thinking back I wish I did

they say he jumped or fell from a railroad bridge,

There were rumors of intentional suicide,

but if so, I’ve got to wonder, what could drive a kid?
