"Wall of war," eh?
I wanted to let you know I appreciate your poem, without having to get into some kind of tired political debate. Which is one of the reasons I like this poem... it doesn't get all preachy, even though its subject matter is specifically political.
Mourning an anonymous human being can be difficult, if you've never known them. I do like, in your poem, how you pit the closing words "peace" and "war" against one another, capitalizing only one of them. Very subtle.
Nice reading you, Kacy.
