by scott from jail

This evening the sky glowed pink
a desperate rose filling up the evening square of window
mocking nothing- just there
As war is there, as life is just there...

Yesterday, so distant I can not honestly recall
memories filling up the glasses
wearing them thinned them out, wore them out
But I recall the color.
