• Fallen Soldier

    by Morgan Brown

    The authority of a vase of flowers
    Central in their standing
    Tulips, heather, statice
    Embellished with a wide, violet ribbon
    Their container gleams as the sun reflects
    Its crimson heart about the room
    One fallen soldier droops over the rim
    As the rest look on with calculated indifference
