Memorial Day Weekend
by Steve Peacock

They discovered him
in the backyard hammock,
the Best of Chekhov
and a blue hard-covered Bible
stacked to his left,
right hand clutching
a cell phone whose last
function
was to dial 9-1-1,
a call
cut short
when a spilled pint of pilsner
scorched its circuits,
shutting down the device
before he could
tell the operator
about the pain in his chest,
about the numbness in his arm,
about the need to say
I love you
to his wife and
to his daughters,
a dying declaration
relegated to mere thought
and never
to leave
his lips.
