Kandahar

Dark clouds march across blue skies
like battle lines drawn in damp cotton.

Below,
a quiet frenzy in other azure
as surgeons sort glass
shards from bleeding veins,
debride the dirt
from twitching muscle and
sew a soldier
together
again.

Someone had sadly forgotten to tell him
the war was winding down.
