murmur

the murmur of peace

steps across the sky

untouched

unfazed   by the gunfire
and gunfire?
that is just another way to
die without trying
the murmur of war
silent in words   and impossible
to escape
you carry drones on your lids
so every time lift them
another life slides
the murmur of life
breathing   breathing
another son dies

  1. Your verse has such a unique aesthetic: It isn’t raw but not structured either, but perfectly suits your themes. I’ll admit that I was wary when I saw the images. You can deconstruct that statement! But then I read your About page and read your poetry. I’m glad I did.
