EXERPT from Rats in the Rafters

Sis and I used to rat around together all the time when we were teens.   On one of those jaunts, we went to the pirogue races in Lafitte, Louisiana.   That was back in 1974.  The races used to be held in the Barataria Waterway by the Goose Bayou Bridge.  They are held elsewhere now.   Sis and I had a prime tombstone from which to watch the races, suntan, eat, and enjoy our day together. 

This poem was written to memorialize that day.   I will reprint it here, for your consideration. 

Sun on my Grave

 

It was a time of memory:

Of carefree play

Lying prone with the dead

Sunning on their graves

With no dark images

Of fear unknown

Within hearts of glory

Never to be realized.

 

It is a thing of age:

Life chases with no remorse

Dark images and fear into hearts grown dull

Until once more

We are lying prone with the dead

While others of carefree play

I hope

Are sunning on my grave.

Are pirogue races similar to "submarine races?"
