field hospital…

poetry session with accidental tourists

a child’s eyes
move
in random patterns
searching
with breath held
as walls
are pierced
with
the bones
of doves
this was
to be
a safe place
where those
who cared
not
for war
or
causes
that leave
small children
orphaned
could find
some
brief
moment
of peace
to have
their wounds
bandaged
and
healed
before
they buried
those they loved
but
war
so easily blinds
mortal eyes
to
crimes
hidden
behind a veil
of
justifiable
