William Cullen, Jr.

Her  Burial

The April rain that usually cleanses
pelted us like we were actors
performing for the dead
but could not quite cross that line
where the stage ended
and eternity began.
William Cullen, Jr., a veteran who works at a non-profit in New York City, has had his poetry appear in Canary, Gulfstream, New Verse News, Spillway, The Christian Science Monitor and Word Riot.
