Poetry by Jeff Green


The final page

Fourteen pages
told the tale.
Fourteen pages
of failure.

Small black text
listing their lives
but that was not the pain.

He read it all
saw the contrast.
Saw red legal ribbon
sealing the pages.

Harsh white paper
accused him
but the pain
was on the final page.

Her signature
the only
splash of blue.
