Trench-war development

entry picture

 

This butchery of space

wears its frontage

as a pantomine Dame

wears its lipstick

with lashes to match

lashes of despair

and fallen concrete.

This is an absolute stunner of a poem Tommy. I love the metaphor here. I think war often has been a complete pantomime. certainly the first world war was no exception
Nice one

Tommy,

This highly abstract poem has the abiity to conjure. in the mind. so much of which is associated with the horrors of the trenches.

I enjoyed this and thank you

Keith
