6 August

the dead are statistics
there is no count of
the walking dead

without a warning
life leaps out
- connection interrupted

and that
lizard like memory
with glass eyes

no calendars, no hours
no appointments
no deadlines
just a vast cavity of
to fill

the clumsiness
of words
the inadequacy
of translations

many decades ago
the worst bombs
had dropped

you will never know
when I died
I will never know
if you really cared.
