Blood Under Head - Poem by Douglas Scotney

'Whatever it is that,
having fought, you're
prevented from reaching,
but others therefore can reach...
... that enables others to'

bubbles from the mouth of a drawing
of a poet-soldier running up a beach.

It is the last graphic on the page.
Overleaf he's dead,
blood under head.
