Elderly Man Found Drowned in River

by: William Peters (Dramatic poem) I float under here and hear the town’s words You talked about me. Your voices are soothing to me now, your consonants rounded, Fuzzy around the edges. When I walked the streets in town you took in my high waisted pants My cataract eyes, my teeth (did I put them…
