homogenized…

homgenized

the markers
on the ground
are
all the same
so as
not to
differentiate
their social
political
status
but
they were
not
all the same
some fathers
others
mothers
some
killed
in combat
others
killed by
social neglect
some families
handed flags
others
given just this plot
but
though
i say
i regret
that their
story is not
fully told
i do hold
that each
burial
was handled
with
respect
more
than
was given to them
when
alive
uniques
stories
untold
on small plaques
