War blew in, blew in savagely
against and with sway. March 8, 2017

Judy DeCroce

green soldiers of March
tipped, tipping to a fall
in a theatre of engagement
uprooted casualties 

their twist and snap
swelling piles of death
bullied to the last 

by a weapon unseen
falling without grace
branches, lost limbs,
tangled or straight 

yet there stands victors
victors among them—distinguished
in wind’s accent
