Smoke/Ghost - Poem by Bryan Riley

Unchained
Unheeded
Warning
Mourning
S oldiers left
on the field
to die
Try to
cry out but
voiceless
whimper catch
fire on a
roof of thatch
Scratching-post
Ailing ghost-like
presence in the
upstairs hall
A wisp of smoke
drifts up,
unseen until
ceasing to
exist at all
