IndiGlow - The Ordinary Illuminated

IndiGlow - The Ordinary Illuminated


Saturday, December 13, 2014


Private Davis is at the back

of the room, mostly

to mend his mother.  She wants him

free of rounds and shells and sand

on fire.  I watch him:  a boy, crew cut,

T-shirt, fatigues folded at the foot

of his childhood bed.

We practice our yoga, breathe and breath taken

for granted.

He is built for M16s,

blast and calm, dares to do it.

He could kill a man.  Has.

He could offer a cupped palm to a starving dog.

All I can do is offer him a few inches of space

on a rubber mat,

and breath and breathe.
