four monostichs by Seth Carr

SAME WAR, DIFFERENT TIME

He put new shoes on Sun Tzu’s horse.

DON’T BREATHE

We can’t live if we don’t breathe, but what we breathe will kill us.

RECIPROCITY

They sacrificed to build a better world; the world laid them on the altar.

BURN

He spoke with passion and vigor until all his vigor was gone.
