Empty Name
Hero,Wide eyed open.Staring, Luminous up toward the billow smoke, a torrential downpour, a sinuous river.Countless bodies blocked the enemy surge, and now accumulation of corpses, blemished from side to side, Lay calm and cool, gripping a five-fingered rifle. Helmets roll in circles, unspoken screams of people, mothers, and brothers; quietly echo On lime meadow field of snow-white chiseled rocks, with a Hero’s name. A Hero’s name empty, like heroism. Those men will die for you and you for them, as if a breath. All heroism is empty. All heroism is empty.
