The Soldier

I take a look inside a mirror

underneath my breath, I whisper

“I see something decent in this mental patient

because in his eyes, he looks more alive

than me.”

 

I look past him, over his shoulder

and assume he must be a soldier

because in his wake, there’s a massive quake

where he mowed the enemy down, but there isn’t a sound

next to me.
