Title Missed Cue
Description MISSED CUE Elaine Parcy Murphy Professional Honorable Mention Poetry Carmen, so quiet, living in your own small space Which you so seldom shared. Your life ended a number of years ago Your eulogy was spoken to but a handful hi the smallest room of the mortuary. At a public auction your possessions had been sold: A large collection of books, Your only "home-companions." Hundreds of sets of salt and pepper shakers Empty - as your life must have been. 1 remember our last visit As I was attempting to learn from you The kind of gift those of us who worked with you Should buy for you. Weak and worried as you were, You said, "Bath powder." I said, "What brand?" Your eyes glimmered momentarily and you said, "Emeraude." "Emeraude," you repeated, "ismy favorite." Excusing myself, I went to the Pink Shop. On, how I wanted to cover your shoulders. A bed jacket and bath powder, too? Not enough money for a jacket and Emeraude. Instinctively I felt the need for warmth upon your shoulders. A bed jacket and cheaper bath powder I bought. When you opened the gifts I knew regret, The light went out of your eyes. You had revealed something of yourself to me I had neglected the essence of your cues. You should have had your Emeraude And my arms. 91
