Iraq Valentine

How many of us started out
with really strong vocations
to become saints or heroes
who wound up with no one
in charge upstairs no sense
of the mythological once
the tyrant took the personal myth
into an ever-deepening spiral
of equivalence and debt
you see we lost the thread
all around us lay the dead
who remembers anymore
the resurrection words
come whisper them to me
