Veterans

 

I still see your eyes

they call it

that thousand mile stare

 

How many times have I seen

listened

to the quietness begin?

 

That hesitation

and I know your back there

back there again.

 

Again

 

I see your eyes

the silence begins

a moment or two.

 

Maybe longer

an age of years

renewed.

 

Time

 

And  what does that mean?
