Soul Soot Poetry

#poetry, #prose

inside

there is love and war

how long until the good soldiers fall

how long until all my teeth fall out

summon great winds and ocean

a tsunami to wash away

the ceaseless, senseless battles

humility and silence remain

i remember to pray

that the best words aren’t mine

inside

there is starfall and bloodfire

dreams gripping hope

like mothers protecting children

hurry up with the living

hurry up with the dying

there’s no safety in the unknowing

~A.M. Troester, Inside (Soul Soot Poetry)
