THE 27 CLUB By Kelly Peacock

THE 27 CLUB

There are three pairs of sneakers

hanging by their laces from telephone lines—
a pair each for Hendrix, Cobain, Winehouse.
You wonder how long it will be
until you end up with the rest of them.
This almost feels like a confession.
You do not ask for it,
but I wonder
if forgiveness means anything
at all.
By Kelly Peacock
