Arielle by Cord Moreski

for Steven Kurasz 

When I think about you
it’s always Friday double date night

with your Simpsons’ references 
and love for Bill Murray films

Hell or High Watermelon beers  
and Vic’s tomato pies in Bradley Beach 

your life ended 
on the shortest day of the year 

and the weekends now 

take just a little longer to recall.

Cord Moreski is a poet from the Jersey Shore. Moreski is the author of Confined Spaces(Two Key Customs, 2022), The News Around Town (Maverick Duck Press, 2020), and Shaking Hands with Time (Indigent Press, 2018). When he is not writing, Cord waits tables for a living and teaches middle school children that poetry is awesome. His next chapbook Apartment Poems will be released by Between Shadows Press in September 2022. You can follow Cord here:
