11/11: A Remembrance Poem

cold streets , but not cold as graves

remember with every breath - no wind is as cold or final as a cenotaph

however chilly, afterwards you will go home (unlike those heroes) to the peace built on their bones, mortared in blood and horror

from a world of graves, a whisper down the wind’s blade - do not forget them
