Yperite

late at night 
a mist 
fills the valley.
without knowing 
it suffocates 
like a dark power. 
on the fields 
our dead bodies 
and under the grass 
a brown soil
 

"Tyne Cot" 

when you left 
for the front
you were 
living heroes 
and now 
you’re on top 
of the hill 
where only
poppies 
blow......
