Soren Paul Petrek





It stank of death

the blasted land

the taste of copper

under the shells


Green pastures lost

to everyone

to the boys who

killed each other


Once a child thrust

to men no time

to grow up

and mature


Stolen their youth

forgotten and lost

their generation

the damned








A broken twig

is finished

no more time

in the sun


The carefree

warmth and

growth gone

green paling


Fracture that

won’t heal

without help

from a hand


Splice and

rejuvenate waiting

to grow
