‘ghosts and casualties’
by the wine
unable to sate
the nauseous ache inside.
head of the table
more an unknown soldier
lost somewhere between
the catacombs and war.
yes, go on and be merry
endless chatter carries on;
drift, drift as
glass to lips;
another toast to ghosts
hearts brimming with crimson grapes.
