War haiku

Iraq

2004

gaunt children
selling old bayonets -
noonday sun

summer solstice -
women in black abayas
wade in the sea

twelve hour watch:
the morning threat report
in rhymed couplets

uncomfortable -
body armor shifting
on the car seat

Kylan Jones-Huffman
(USA), killed while serving in Iraq.
