Hi! Thank you for your attention and participation and enthusiasm yesterday. You guys rocked! I had so much fun writing poetry with you, and I hope you did, too.

men running everywhere,
the blood of vicious soldiers
hurt or tortured people
dust in the sky or on the ground–
Tension hangs in the air
Charging, galloping, and screaming,
