She was wearing a six-dollar
golden necklace inscribed,
” I love you Mom.1990 ”
She left a letter,

for me these past months..
I am dropping almost everything
it is getting harder to speak..”
She pulled a clear plastic hood
over her head,fastened it around
her neck with velcro,opened two
helium canisters with tubes
leading into the hood;
she was found in her
mobile home adjacent the golf course
in Monroe Township off Exit 8;
She was wearing a six-dollar
golden necklace inscribed,

Footnote:-
When people ask me why I write about sad topics,my response is predicated on,”What went Ye out into the Wilderness for? to see
a man clothed in fine raiment?”
“The Local News” is very much a “found”poem,gleaned from
a US local radio station’s daily news headlines via the Internet.
