 Poems for Lovers and Sinners

My Brother was Silent

My Brother was Silent

I waited for you brother day and night

within the shadows among the tents

I prayed for your return.

Then they brought you from the field

you were calm like the desert sands.

A silhouette so delicate and calm

to my fingers.

I found a crumpled picture of a girl

in your pocket torn bloodied and stained.

Memory after memory of departed love

came flooding from within her wrinkled smile.

I undid your bundle -

my heroic brother who had come home.

Feel the warmth of my hands upon your face.

Let my lips kiss your forehead, awake...

I'll shout your praises.

Yet my brother was silent.

Yes, my brother was silent.

While his blood cried out from the ground.
