Apparition

 

 

I Pause Sightless,

 

In My Mission

 

To Bring Forward Ammo, Water, Rations,

 

Oblivious To A Hundred Oozing Cuts

 

I No Longer Smell

 

The Flat Coral Dust, Powder Smoke,

 

Napalm, Burning Flesh

 

I Stare Through

 

From Pupils Dilated

 

In Red Rimmed Eyes

 

Sunk In Flesh Clothed Skull,

 

Waiting For Obstruction

 

To Move Or Not

 

And In Morphia’s Gentle Grasp

 

Hold Me

 

From The Demons

 

Of Friends Killed Young

 

Who Await My Coming
