For Jim

Firebrand

If I were a man,
would I ask
Does she do it for love-
or just because she can?

If I were a man,
would strength be in my heart-
or in my hands?
How much can one withstand?

It goes to follow,
in Sleepy Hollow
Heads will roll.
A plane, umanned will crash-land
a mother’s ashen remnants of a soul.
Strange fits of passion-
unplanned.

Addendum:

There really is no  way to completely avoid the end of Jim’s story. However, I have been trying to make a compilation of the contributions he made – such as attending events and tirelessly publicizing the Channon Christian/Chris Newsom case, Robbie Hedrick case, breast-cancer walkathon, Toledo, and endless hours of radio time. If you have something you remember and would like to share, please leave a comment here or on any of the postings.
