War clouds roll in
Bullets rain, fight the storm
Eighteen hands now crossed, under flags

War and Peace

Diamonds
are laid
in steamy clubs
where spades pierce willing
hearts

Helmand Night

dusk falls
war and often
stars above watching men
hide fears held close behind a gun...
move out.

Peace, Dispatch


I spied tonight
Bold murdered crows, 
Broad golden feathers strong,
Wearing steel beaks
Bound in ivory tight.
