THE WWIII MEMORIAL
(To the Magyar Poet Sándor Csoóri)
He’s a living WWII memorial,
he cannot take a breath without
choking on a cloud of cordite smoke,
he cannot take a step without
falling in with a column of POW’s,
he cannot look at the sky without
seeing bombs raining down,
and yet he runs ahead of the twenty-
trying to divert it back to
quiet farms and busy workshops
and away from the already
festooned WWIII memorial
waiting there among the ruins
of a smoke-sketched future.
