6/21/2022 – the blood upon my hands

I walked out on the sunburnt ground
And whispered to the breeze
Asked why it hadn’t come around
Brought scents from distant seas

It told me there was trouble out
Upon some distant shore
One I had seldom heard about
Nor cared very much for

And so the wind did leave me there
To blow in far-off lands
And careless I stand in this air

Unseeing of the blood upon my hands
