Sacred Ground

(for Vlado, family and friends of Trent)

defined by blood this place
Spring air taken away
the lights set red

they came late Saturday
to an empty intersection
the outpouring of grief

messages and tied flowers
personal tributes, names
a photograph - their memorial

but more than a name was left
ingrained in the ground
the lights set red
