Item

This, with a face
Like a mashed blood orange
That suddenly

Would get eyes
And look up and scream
War! War!

Clutching her
Thick, ragged coat
A piece of hat

Broken shoes
War! War!
Stumbling for dread

At the young men
Who with their gun-butts
Shove her

Sprawling-
A note
At the foot of the page.
