Veil of Warfare

Author: • March 19, 2017 • Poems

(for Aleppo)

We lie amidst beats of music,
While no sound save sporadic gunfire is your dirge of eternity.
The rush of bodies is not rare to us,
While you see scattered shoes left about by fleeing feet.
We record, and stream and shout and scream
The movements on your expanse,
While you slowly wince,
And mumble
In broken syllables –
A resistant
Good-
bye.
