Verse: Hiroshima

as i
gaze upon
the chalk outlines

a grim, hollow reminder
of a brief moment
so long ago

i wonder
what is
there to offer

to comfort
those who are
the departed

to quench their thirst
for life

a silence
that complements
their own

a voice
too conflicted
to take a side

or this
a hope
for never again
again and again
