spring 2003 ~
not enough dandelions
for all the wishes

no war for oil !
the black stain on the ground
where he burnt

eastern sky -
even without eclipse
crimson moon

Basra . . .
a frayed flag flutters
before the setting sun

halloween
the real ghouls
are in the white house

war on terror
they light candles
in the night

 

urban refugees
sleeping on the ground
night of Empire

 

NYC Aug. 14th

death to my enemy!
a moment of stillness
and then another mosquito

Daniel

 

on his way
they cut the throat of sheeps
before Americans

Serge

 

globalization --
from Manhattan to Ryad
the same dust

Serge (May 13th)

 

 

 

Bagdad spring --
all heroes are black
on the ground

 

blazing sun --
some bodies crammed
in the fridge truck

 

a pure sky --
under the midday sun
charred bodies

Serge

 

plundering
of the University
dusty wind

Serge

 

Life comes back --
in the pools of blood
all these flies

 

Intifada Day 3

 

muddy morning --
the soldiers retreat
under the stones

 

Bagdad Intifada Day 1

Irakischer Sand
zwischen den Zehen Soldat-
ein Leben lang...

empty seat -
the flag folded
over the wait

a cold-blooded winter with reports of dead children and more snow

Cindy

 

 

two soldiers killed was that today yesterday or tomorrow

Marlene

peace in pieces a new crater left by a bomb

cindy

 

a wall meanders to steal more stolen land

marlene

between that and this plots to kill on both sides of the ocean

marlene

 

passing the cobbler
peter jennings repeats
the body count

Ed Markowski

 

 

night fog...
how friendly is
friendly fire

Ed Markowski

 

 

 

 

baghdad bombing
a green volkswagon
in the rubble

 

wounded and dying
I have my doubts
that the smoke
will ever clear

 

Just got word the UN building has been blown up in Baghdad (Aug 19th)

Cindy

year of war --
I haven't seen the blue
of fireflies

'2 down, 1 to go' a few beer cans picked out of the weeds

Leafs in the wind
Children in the war
No choices

Memorial Day ~
our dead, their dead . . .
no difference now

the end of the war
but man's heart always remains
