From either...

Serving Suitors who just curse and carouse.
Few mix wine with water. I heard one shout,
"Clean down the tables with wet sponges! Rouse
Yourselves! And when...

by Michael R. Burch

I did it out of pity.
I did it out of love.

when betrayal comes

Virulent apathy spreads 
Betrayal’s destruction

Visit to Antietam
Alone I arrive, walking from Frederick
over the gaps, across gentle hills
out onto a knoll
overlooking this burnished landscape.
Before me I see countless writhing rows
of indiscernible shapes gathered
in terrible rituals mid fire and smoke
darkening the sun.
From distant...

or, even worse,
vaguely sexist.
