Peace In War

 
Each evening insects defend my slumber,

by drowning out the screaming bombshells,

blasting through the jet black sky,

somewhere in the west,

but I’m too afraid to look,

so I apply my attention to the insects,

who distract me enough 

to find 

peace,

even in war.

- Kirk Jones
