An ageless angel

Sat upon the snow-covered

Mountain, a light against the darkness.

He tends to the dead and the dying on the

Battlefield.

The men lay in pools of  blood

Calling to him. Asking for forgiveness

And salvation between gasps of

Flooded lungs. They sat calling, wanting

Only rest…They continued to call

Into the night unaware that

Lucifer

Is his name.

Eyes

A scarlet sky

At midday

Such an odd sight

As I look up.

I don’t even mind

The acquired aroma of

Vomit, blood, and rot

That mingles to sting the nostrils.

An explosion nearby,

A cascade of earth

And charred flesh

Showers the terrain.

I cannot move

Pinned under the few and the proud.

My breathing grows

More shallow.

A blink           The sky          Goes blue

       Then fades         To black.

” Buzz”

I saw a fly hover

 As she died.

 I wonder if it smelt

The death that lingered.

 Or was it just attracted

 To the heat of so many bodies

 In a little room.

The fly lands on her

 Head humming into her

Ear a jaunty tune.

The doctor sweeps his hand

To shoo it away and leave

 Her at peace.

 Soon, she dies, but little

 Do others know, death stopped

 For two that day, as I

 Wipe my hand on my pants.
