John Samuel Tieman: Ghost Story

the starlings swirling
and loud

you’d think the years would put
the thing to rest

you’d think the words would hurry
the drive to silence

still it comes
and goes quickly

the sun for just
a second suspended

while the memory of the war
for forty-six years

that won’t go
finally away
