Destroying

Make sense of incongruity:
pictures of skeletons,
churches bombed,
classic hero-figure

in the river… Defy
in painting bravely rusted,
find the flintlock ways
of an artist to create

extension. We see life in
“how free we are!”
but we also see
symbols, or only symbols

instead of people.
“Persons”
who are forced together
on the gun barrel,

rivers painted across
the arms, teals and distortion,
inherited history. The idea
expressing something

other than the war–Know
humanity is built
around, and capable of,
wiping itself out.
