PRAYER AGAINST WAR (excerpts)

embrace
with your terribly delicate love
every victim of war

the young mother
who cannot be found and the father
whose cry splits a wall

dear god have mercy on the uncounted

for Michael and Gennaro Anthony Brian
Allah have mercy

Analaura Nichole Kimberly Keicia
Allah have mercy

for Farid and Tariq Salim and Mirza
dear god have mercy

Basma and Djamila Hana Shahrazad
dear one have mercy

dear god have mercy on the uncounted

in the names of the dead and the missing
our orphans and yours

JOSEPH GASTIGER
