who’s next

*

previous year the mother

this year the older brother

lay motionless

tears falling

 

*

o angel of death

why you come with no tell

no voice sounded

nor shadow seen

sudden the body trembling …. convulsively

passion fading to gray

breathe strangled by silence

a soul has gone by

and you…. walk away with strapping steps

slowly lost in the hymn of victory

while we wondered

who’s next

***
