Eye In The Shelter

If you had told me at the time there was going to be a Second Gulf War, I wouldn't have believed you because the destruction seemed so complete in the first one. I remain fascinated by the disconnect among the pictures "we" are allowed to process, the pictures "they" are allowed to process and what is truly happening. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but talk is cheap. Poetry, by parsing them, I hope shortens the distance among the three aspects.
