veteran’s day

There’s a line-up of men on the newspaper. Eyes filled with flashes of war and dust, they stare at the camera: tortured heroes. They wear caps instead of helmets now. A few hardened lips break into hints of grins. They’re honored on the pages, but not like they deserve. They see the lack of justice, but they don’t know how to change it. They just take what they can get, and move on — to memories and life and then, finally, death.
