Warming up for NaPoWriMo 26th

April is Global/National Poetry Writing Month. Warming up for writing a poem a day.

“naming the dead”

we number and name our dead
        those we  have known or knew about 
the lists grow longer with each night
        that passes, each lingering breath
the last breaths that we'll count are ours...
       freed from numbers and the names
