National Poetry Month: Day 7. “King: April 7, 1968” by Geoffrey Brock


King: April 7, 1968       We had wanted, at least, to touch your sleeve.       We brought both babies as to a christening.       —Van K. Brock, “King” We stood in line for hours to see his body. My parents said they knew the line would be long. They took turns carrying my brother I walked beside them.
