Memorial Day, Hartford, 2019

Garth Myers


It shouldn’t take a war to remember the dead

It shouldn’t even take a day

The dead are all around us below us above

Us inside us.

On Cedar Hill Hepburn and Hall

Lie with them all,

Wells Welles Williams Wallace

Fischer Forester Friedman Fernandez

D’Agostino Dimitri De la Garza.


I could read the names to you one by one

Mother father daughter sister brother son

But you already know them, us

Inside us. It shouldn’t take the dead

To remember the dying.
