Saluting The Army Reserve

When I was five
and my brother was just three,
we lived across the street
from an Army Reserve barracks.

We were in awe
of the khaki-clad soldiers
who gathered each day for exercises.

My brother and I would wait
on our front porch,

our toy rifles hoisted
to our shoulders,
chubby fingers poised
in respectful salutes.

The soldiers that passed us by
would salute in return,
and we like proud troopers
stood taut and straight as arrows.
