THE LAST WILL
OF MAD ANTHONY WAYNE: HIS BONES


It was his will
that the blockhouse soldiers
boil his body in the big black pot;
his will that the lightened,
disconnected bones be borne
by horseback home
to the banks of Octoraro Creek;
his will that his son
come riding up —
white horse lathered
and wheeling about —
demanding his father's bones.
