This
is the trench
in which I lived

The edges still ooze
after all this time

I should be
crying

There's a brother
somewhere

in this dirt

I visited Verdun...remember one section where bayonets were sticking up from the ground.  Supposedly the men were bombarded within their trenches and buried within the trenches where they died...James

war? I run tear rather than run words.

Deep water doesn't  show big waves.
