I never fell in love with her
until we were in Raintree County.
She almost won the big one
with that one
I forget
who beat her out,
but it was not important
she won for me.
I was with her in Raintree again,
for the fourth time
in Downtown Indianapolis
between red and white
Trailways busses destined
for Norfolk Virginia
and the whole world
as part of the U.S Navy Sixth

I was seventeen
she was twenty-six
and I did not even mind later
that Richard beat me out--twice.
Losing to the best is always an honor.
I told her in prayer to keep him but
she never listened to me.
She was always Richards
and mine
in that order.
Sleep beautiful Princess,
Our only Great American Princess,
We sleep with you.
Elizabeth, Richard and me.
