[40] The Rationed Wait of the Soldier, Mark Mazzoli

Vietnam vets know that
great men are made by great

and the inside of an umbrella is a miserable place for a mosquito or anything else
to die
caught in the closing once
the storms have stopped showering

and pile up on the ground

So, carrying what light I can
I run to become

as the snowdrifts, preceding the glaciers,
cover the paths to paradise
