The Bench

The benches hold plaques,
mini-memorials, describing notable entities
of the community
in so many words:
Mother, writer, friend.
She will be remembered.

How will I be described
I wonder
if anyone ever
has the urge
to invest in my plaque?

Jonathan Berger
he talked loud
said nothing.

Jon Berger
He paid me
to say this.

Jonathan David Berger
His middle name was David
and nobody cared.

I don’t know
if I really want to be remembered
on a park bench.
I do know
that I am very afraid
how I will be remembered.

About Jonathan Berger

I used to write quite a bit more.
