THE WOODEN RAMP poem
by Richard L. Provencher  
12/27/2008 / Poetry


The Wooden Ramp

His front porch provides
background
for a front lawn chocking
with ragweed

clusters of dandelions
joining peeled paint pass
as landscape

wheelchair ramp at an
extreme angle,
fingering the open doorway.

Gulf War arms need two
smoking tries to roar up the
incline, sometimes

three painful tumbles are part
of the plan,
deserved bruises.

Remembers how it
used to be, wife and kids
picnics of fun

and laughter. Now it's
these useless legs and
lots of booze

son, Harry probably now ten,
Joan's arms just a dream
storm clouds

the only activity around.

(c) Richard L. Provencher 2004
