Cristina Rizzo

Mud

                 After Wilfred Owen

 

Spleens are thrust on the ground,

While legs squelch through

Lakes of cardinal red.

 

Rough metals clank and cut

Through clumps of contracting

Muscles, tissues.

 

Blades taste like ice

On the shivering skins

Of those

 

Who’ve feebly fought

For fathers

For fatherlands

 

Which few will

Fail to satisfy

And exalt.

 

While out will come others,

Not braver men,

But perhaps on better terms with chance,

 

Who’ll lie, alive, in luscious,

Luxurious praises and gains

But whose minds will have broken.

 

Therefore I give these words

To whoever lies in the mud,

Both in the body and in the mind.
