The veteran

The veteran
was speaking
Of the war

He would
do it all again
as before

if only
you would
love him more

with his hand
he would
part the wheat
in the field

with his heart
he would part
the eyesight
in the sky

with his strength
he would move
the mountains
in the east

with his courage
he would nourish
the frightened
and the least

he’s not the kind
to let you down
he’ll die before
the wind
has finished

then he
took up his cue
and potted a ball
as easy as that
he gives his all

it’s in the call
it’s all
in the calling

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
