The Forgetting: Warrior Children

We walk and marry under the paper trees
gardens cut just so atmosphere thin
living do not ask it was painted
how much the expression costs

A dumb question light has washed
everything surrounding nothing rubble
not even tatters dust every particle
something else before this was family

Who decided what gets blown up giving which
deadly instructions time shortening running
from the center to another center carried so away
growing up pushed aside in a long ago war

She said he played the game when he was young
mystery solved in the ongoing battle restless
for the next bout of pain the smile or do they
all in the row it is their picture lasting
