Red Dawn In Nam

I hear them say that I am going home,
But a terrible price I've paid.
Out of the ether, disembodied and discontent,
No doubt what I have become:
I look down dead leaves and dead grass:
I am aghast!
Blood drops like sapphires from the body next to mine:
leaving trail--
Eternity drips away inch by inch inside me--
