Somme (2): where we breathe (underground)

we are all the same

I
over here

you …

at least for you
all fighting’s done

at least
for you a place
to lie in peace

while I catch
my breath

a paltry breath
before the whistle
blows

you and I
inhale the same
this musty stuff

my friend

our air
is one
shared inspiration

breathed underground
