Pomegranate

 

A young man in green fatigues

Sees it wheel between his knees.

Three seconds to quickly seize the rolling seed of furry.

“No need,” says Persephone,

Seated on the side of the GI.

“I’ve been denied the right my whole life.

It’s time to find out what it’s like to be alive.”

A blinding light ignites the night

And soon subsides the fire and fright –

Another GI who has died despite

This lovely way we live.
