Dedicated to the women and children at war.

Room unlit, sshe graps the 
         familiarityy in blackness, 
                    as herr eyes slowly adapt to 
             reach the siill and peek out the window, 
                        the daark is deeper outside, the 
                      thin glass betweenn her and the dark got 
                                             thickeer, awaits the falling ash 
                                    from a mill neearby, begins counting, starts with an odd for 
                                  her lips got tiredd of murmuring 
                      even, her pace becomes fasster and faster, digits piling up followed by
                   three dots and a flatline, can't hhold of it much steps backward, 
                                            found the edge of thee bed, and lets the weight of 
                her body fall flat on the mattress, delliberately and intensed, still her 
                               eyes fixed at the window, the "ppouring" halted, the ashes  

from where it fell gather turned flesh, rises and 
clings at the pane like silhouette of hands, 
big and small, like footsteps imprinted on 
grey slates that in one stroke will return to ash, 
thoughts begin to baffle her, 
where are they going now?
