Robert Demaree- Senryu Sequence

Nostalgia 1948-1968
Senryu sequence

Dim childhood heroes
Eddie Joost, Hank Majeski
Philadelphia A's

Sunday after church
Family in living room
Tchaikovsky playing

Pink buttondown shirt
Oxford cloth, those scuffed white bucks
Nineteen fifty-four

Fraternity boys
Weekend trips to Myrtle Beach
Empty beer cans

Wedding trip hotel
We can no longer afford
On the Outer Banks

Solemn procession
Marching to Morehouse College
April, Sixty-eight.
