The Spouse

Through his aging, once jet-black beard
Came the movement of his chapped lips
Which drew out the beating of war drums
Sad war drums
Like an army that had been defeated
But kept marching in rhythm, regardless
His deep brown eyes peaked out through his
Thick rimmed, over-worn glasses
And within his words I was sure I could hear

[Hata Bildir]
