A Warm Bath

December 1, 2014

every war is a civil war
every casualty is a crime,
together we stood
and lost one another
to the test of time.
we disolved
into a warm bath –

and forgot the rest.

An American Shadow

January 27, 2009

An American shadow
in the land of no rain,
we’re the makers of widows
and the fillers of graves;
Freedom is a heavy coin
no matter how much it is praised.
