“Layers 2”


What matters that lost among the tangled brush,
Surrounded by a river, the stink of death,
The transport leaving, the bridge washed out,
What matters that prayer could work,
That prayer might work, why question
The boy’s attempt at 19 to want to live,
Regardless of whether a prayer
Makes sense in a disintegrating universe
Of encroaching fire?
