peaceful parapet

warped and wounded
our threads woven
through battlevests’
loathsome comfort

we perch and await
next volley

silent rally cries
fall behind solid walls

I knew you
from your pain
before I ever knew
your face

we watch
learning our breath

feeling absence of time
cherish a rest

One thought on “peaceful parapet
