For the Boss

By Erwin Jaeger

Like pennies from heaven
like angels to hell

A night in a cabin
with a man
30 years my senior
and stories
of youth
and age
of innocence
and loathing
of cigarettes
and learning
every little thing there was
to know & experience
from a man
who died
in a cabin
with memories

Rest in peace Sir.
