"the dolls" by Ross Balcom

the dolls

you will see her
sobbing

seized by grief
she cannot bear

BARBIE
kneeling graveside

one glance from her
will tell you

KEN
is  buried there

--Ross Balcom

Poet's Notes: With Ken out of the way, Barbie is available. Now ROSS makes his move....

Editor’s Note:  Go get her, Ross.  Meanwhile, enjoy this:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_dRn3DYydAQ.
