    Default Chocks Away, Chaps (CTG)

    Chocks Away, Chaps

    Thinking of my mother passing at 2:30 AM today,
    I keep looking at the happy wedding photographs

    from seventy-five years ago: all those uniforms!
    Woollen gray of the Royal Air Force: Dad rakish

    sergeant in the RAF medical corps, khaki jackets
    of my Mum's fellow Auxiliary Territorial Service pals.

    My Mum's Joan Crawford-plucked eyebrows;
    Dad pulled her into the seclusion of the limo.

    Thanks, Mart. Will do. I will have my parents' wedding album at the memorial gathering on Saturday along with other photographs of my Mum down through the years.
