Three Crosses

Three crosses
like three Valentines
on the hill
flourishing on a green stage

fifty miles farther
into the Virginias,
three crosses
like three birds on a branch gazing down,

thirty miles towards Ohio,three crosses
like three grace notes
in the symphony of sheltering trees

a small wooden cross
plastic flowers, a name and a date
steps from the highway
buckle up

 a palm frond cross
hangs from the mirror
my hand floats to my throat, a silver cross
