Fires

By
More by this author
The brief flicker and flash, bang, and silence of a gun
The heavy burning of shame and guilt
The soft crackle of a village gone
And the snap of the foundations built

The dead so cold in a fire so warm
Who is to say they weren’t sleeping?
As the fire dies in a watery storm
And the sound of all the women weeping.
