Reach by Pamela Ireland Duffy

I am not a silent poet

declarations

treaties

wars begin

and end

with words

and in between

the unspeakable

lost

for words

fail me

walls

falling

blind choking

fingers reaching

towards the light

life reaching

up through ruined

war-machined

paralysis

voices reaching

up beyond

indifferent

ice clouds

to that space

where there are

still words

still hope

of an ending.
