Hearse

Verses in
hearses

verses that
never bloomed,
never had a chance
to drink the sun

verses that
were erased
before hitting
paper

all the red ink
ribbons turned
invisible, blotted
in the name of
blight

verses vs hearses

welled up
curses unspoken

the battle of
the century
the battle of
the block
the battle of
the skin
the battle of
the landmine heart
the battle of
the nightmare

the battle of the
mural of our
tears

the battle to
remember not
to forget

the battle
to reignite
the night

verses vs
hearses
