Gail Is Gone by Bruce Mundhenke

Gail is gone.
I heard about it
Just the other day.
No more ball and jacks,
No more Barbie dolls,
No more jumping ropes,
No more Beatles records
Stacked to play.
Nothing else
I’ll ever hear her say…
I saw her brother Bruce today,
I’m sorry Gail is gone,
It’s all that I could say.
