I am pleased to announce that my poem Friends in Low Places was chosen to be a part of the North Carolina Bards 2021 poetry anthology.
You can see more details here:
It seems it would be a good Memorial Day tribute as well!
Friends in Low Places
Dwight L. Roth
Today I walked through the cemetery of my childhood
of all life stories encapsulated there.
Friends and neighbors
inscribed on these stones;
A card catalog
of stories one can no longer check out.
Ancestries long buried in dust
some lost in time;
Yet, the stones live on
calling for recognition from the living.
