Early bird tickets for Baltimore’s BEST party on sale now!

Ozzie and Harriet, We Hardly Knew Ye


Dys-func-tion-al families

hush cries for love and support

with vicarious napalm

once dropped

on remote Vietnamese villages:

mother, father and children

refugees left to seek solace

in socially acceptable jobs,

friendships and marriages:

their secret pain shared

and dismissed each time

a body receives Last Rites

without feeling or purpose
