Remnant of war
A Remnant of War

Here I am,
A remnant of war,
Here I lay, broken and riddled with arrows and acrimony
As I watch the birds fly away with my bloodied eyes. 

The sky is as grim as the reapers
Who unleashed hell on us,
Ambushing...Read More

Yet men have died in places that appal

“Deep, deep, deep. Listen and hear our faint gait.
Sanitation, fluorescent lights, and a PC pillow for smother.

Lepus Syriacus
Did my pain first waltz through blue-white arches of Ugarit?

Or was it brewed in the stone cauldrons of a nameless desert city?

.........The Belly Dancer.........

Stood beside her teacher on the stage.
Young, brunette. Hip hugger magenta 
jeans and a short bandana shoulder 
less top...
Her young heart leapt with dreams of 
dancing fame.
Shoes were forbidden, just her
beautiful feet showed.
And heavy finger cymbals from Syria

She imagined...Read More

They pay so much and beat ordeals.
Their names spread and shake regimes.

Attaining dominance over Middle East skies:
While IDF ground divisions launch into position.

Cloud sands bellow in their wake unfurl,
