among the missing

two months gone
from  home for
a job on the road
away from her,
restless nights,
hectic days,
phone calls stop-

chores done,
children asleep,
one black car
pulls into the driveway.
 the door bell rings.
the door opens,
two solemn men
stand before her,
her legs give way -

10  days missing,
10 days of searching,
- nothing.

one more listed
among the missing.

for the families of those missing from the oil rig accident off the coast of Louisiana. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
